Thank You

To all volunteers in Victoria County.

Your dedication and hard work is what keeps our communities viable.

We appreciate all that you do!

“Volunteers Have Heart”

The Volunteer
The Volunteer is one with a heart so sincere
No task too large, no task too small
Who will help with anything at all
Who will be there in the morning light
Or help in the dark of night
The Volunteer, our extra hand
On whose future our Children Stand
Never anyone so dear as a Volunteer in Victoria County!



The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Volunteerism Fact Sheet 


Volunteering: The happiness effect

Helping others kindles happiness, as many studies have demonstrated. When

researchers at the London School of Economics examined the relationship

between volunteering and measures of happiness in a large group of

adults, they found that the more people volunteered, the happier they were,

according to a study in Social Science and Medicine. Compared with people

who never volunteered, the odds of being “very happy” rose 7% among

those who volunteer monthly and 12% for people who volunteer every two to

four weeks. Among weekly volunteers, 16% felt very happy—a hike in happiness

comparable to having an income of $75,000–$100,000 versus $20,000, say

the researchers. [Source: https://www.helpguide.org  Simple Changes, Big Rewards: A Practical, Easy health report published by Harvard Health Publications.]
