Why Be a Volunteer?
It’s not for the money. It’s not for the fame.
It’s not for the personal gain.
It’s just for the love of fellow man.
It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give a tithe of self,
that’s something you can’t buy with wealth.
It’s not the medals won with pride.
It’s not for that feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward down in your heart.
It’s feeling that you’ve been a part of
helping others far and near that
makes a wonderful volunteer.
