Volunteering is good for everyone! Did you know volunteers live longer and have lower rates of depression? According to The Corporation for National and Community Service it’s true. And it’s not only good for volunteers, it’s good for our patients too through companionship and engaging in activities.
Throughout the week of April 7-11th, Crossroads will be holding Happiness Hours events to recognize its amazing volunteers; and connect with other community members interested in joining our volunteer program. Happiness Hours will feature refreshments and giveaways. All are welcome!
We’ll also be introducing The Happiness Project, a yearlong project to promote volunteering at Crossroads. It will track our progress as we turn volunteer’s interests and hobbies into meaningful, fulfilling moments. Volunteers can dedicate as little as 45 minutes of their time a week to patients who need companionship while doing the things you love.
Like to read? In a book club? Then why not read to one of our patients?
Like to play cards? In a Gin Circle? Give us your best hand.
Have a pet that may be good with patients? Ask about our pet therapy program.
Are you a high school student in need of volunteering opportunities? We have plenty.
No particular interests or hobbies? Lend a hand in our office!
Please join in! Smiling can boost your immune system and release endorphins and serotonin that make you feel good. Learn more about The Happiness Project and how you can be a part of it at a Happiness Hours near you:
