Do you know the worth of an hour of volunteer work? According to Independent Sector: $25.43. At the last Table Talk, we discussed about the value of volunteers and how to care for them. The food pantries were also honored for their great contributions to the community.
Currently, about 63 million Americans volunteer about 8 billion hours of their time, talent, and effort to improve and strengthen their communities. With the new Value of Volunteer Time, these Americans are contributing approximately $203.4 billion to our nation through nonprofit organizations of all types. The release of this figure coincides with National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, a program of Points of Light meant to celebrate the power and impact of volunteer service. – Independent Sector
