Volunteers give their time and effort because they believe in the organization they’re helping. My family and I have chosen to volunteer occasionally throughout the year at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. We do our best to help out in whatever way we’re directed, but we’re not there every day.
So on those scheduled volunteering days, we devote ourselves to helping others. The volunteer coordinator explains jobs for us to do and makes sure we have any tools necessary to complete the task.
We work hard. But at the end of the day, we are able to rest with a contented sigh. We know we were able to improve the store in our own little way, and that makes us want to return and help some more.
This month, let’s consider a well-deserved rest.
What are you resting from?
