Volunteering at the Y is important to Holly for a few reasons. For one, she enjoys promoting fitness and wellness in the community.
“Healthy community members are happy community members so anything I can do to further community health is a worthwhile mission.” Secondly, Holly personally reaps the benefits of the exercise along with her family as this regular routine becomes ingrained into the fabric of their daily lives.
She feels it’s also important to volunteer because the needs of Y members seems to exceed the amount of paid staff available to provide those services. Holly feels that it’s a part of her civic mission to help fill this gap between what can be accomplished through employment and what can be accomplished through volunteerism.
