“Hi and welcome to my page about my history of volunteering. The purpose of this page is to show that there is always space to contribute something to society, free of charge, using the best of our skills to help support those who may be more vulnerable or in need. I have volunteered while I have been working and I continue to do so to this day. I cannot recommend it highly enough as a way to enhance your life, your skills and your connection to your community and to society as a whole. Please do think about becoming a volunteer. Volunteering is fun and rewarding in so many ways.” – Dean G. Parsons.
