Philanthropy is an idea, event, or action that is done to better humanity and usually involves some sacrifice as opposed to being done for a profit motive. Acts of philanthropy include donating money to a charity, volunteering at a local organization or raising money for a worthy cause.
Homer Township would like to express it’s thankfulness to all the wonderful efforts and progress made by past and present volunteers. It’s because of the selfless acts of others, Homer Township is a great place to live.
If you would like to become a Homer Township Volunteer, please contact the Homer Township Administration Office for more information at 708-301-0522. We look forward to meeting you and discussing the many opportunities available to better our community.
With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community but the benefits can be even greater to you, the volunteer. The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.
Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.
