On Friday the 8th, the ladies at GiveGab and I participated in Women’s Build 2015 with our local Habitat for Humanity. Our company has done a lot of volunteering together, but this build was one of the best volunteering experiences I’ve had! Everyone there was so positive and encouraging which quickly blew away the hesitations I had about my limited experience in building.
Most people don’t realize that volunteering is good for your health. Studies indicate that that people who volunteer not only experience psychological well being, but improved physical health as well.

If you are unemployed or looking to change careers, volunteering demonstrates to prospective employers how you’ve filled the gaps between jobs and your dedication to the community.
