Volunteering releases endorphins. The mind can only think of one thing at a time. This can go a long way to reduce pain or other forms of suffering, There is a deeper aspect. There are two kinds of volunteer experiences.
Please chose which experience you wish to have, before you sign up!
1) You can choose to volunteer in a predictable, organized job where one show up and just does what one is told. Highly valuable for people under stress who just want to help, without having to think or decide.
2) You can choose to volunteer in a climate that is unpredictable to develop your skills in resiliency, teamwork and ability to handle challenges under stressful situations. Excellent to develop teamwork, relationship and problem solving skills. Great for training leadership candidates.
We have opportunities, to meet our agency in action, and help with processing our donations in Central Phoenix. United Way's Project Connect, Arizona Veteran's Stand Down are all service activities we need volunteer help to deliver services.
We attend numerous fun events where we share disaster, safety and health information for pets (and humans) and tell people of our agency's services where one can volunteer and have fun at the event!
