What does volunteering do for me?
Volunteering offers you the opportunity to not only help those in the community, but also offers a way to get involved with local government, community initiatives, and the people of Macomb.
Aside from the personal benefits, employers and educational institutions look favorably at those who are actively giving back to their community.
What does volunteering do for the community?
