If you are looking to stay healthy this summer, might I suggest volunteering? According to Harvard Medical School, volunteering reduces stress and gets people physically active. The social connectedness of volunteering can also contribute to positive mental health. In fact, the Corporation for National and Community Service found significant, positive relationships between volunteering and lower levels of depression. In a study by United Health Group, 94 percent of people who volunteered in the last twelve months said that volunteering improved their mood.

In summary, volunteering is win-win! It is a great way to stay physically and mentally fit while giving back to the community and meeting new friends.

If you are interested in finding out how you can volunteer with the WCA, please contact Jennifer Spencer, Volunteer and Events Coordinator, at jspencer@wcaboise.org or (208) 343-3688 ext. 241.

The first step in volunteering at the WCA is attending one of our informative “If These Walls Could Talk” tour. Please click here for more information on how to RSVP.

For those of you who already volunteer both at the WCA and/or in our local communities, thank you for making Idaho a better place for all of us to physically, mentally and socially thrive.
