Volunteering with Hearts and Hands is very satisfying. You start helping people, and I think you become addicted to it. I like doing it–it’s very fulfilling to help people.


Volunteer, Hearts and Hands

I wanted to do something meaningful with my spare time after retirement. People depend on me; they’re thankful for what I do and that’s a good feeling.


Volunteer, Hearts and Hands

Volunteering fills needs for both the care receivers and the volunteers by building relationships and offering needed services. Volunteering makes the heart happy.
