Lives Enriched Through Volunteerism
As students, we’re all very busy and wrapped up in our own worlds most of the time. With deadlines and assignments piling up fast this month, it is very easy to forget the many people in own community who are struggling simply to get by.
Here at Pop the Bubble our initiative includes promoting civic engagement — we hope that students will become more aware of and involved in the community of Hamilton. One of the easiest and most impactful ways to do this is through volunteering. The commitment can be as slight or large as you choose and at the end of the day you are doing good for your community.
The not-for-profit organization Volunteer Hamilton is a very valuable resource for linking volunteers with potential volunteer agencies. Agencies including nursing homes, schools, camps and charity organizations are always looking for more volunteers to take an active role in their communities. You can search by positions type so it’s easy to find something that interests you.
