I didn’t know much about volunteering growing up. As far as I was concerned, the only volunteers that existed were the ones I saw on television handing out food at homeless shelter soup kitchens or on the news passing out water at local fun runs.
As I got older, the face of volunteering underwent a drastic change. I came to realize my parents had done a certain amount of it themselves at my schools or by offering their specialized skills to people for free.
My grandparents were devoted givers of their time, committing themselves to a myriad of causes too varied to recount.
