Benefits of Volunteering
A little time makes a BIG difference!
The benefits of volunteering are vast. As a volunteer at Salinas Valley
Memorial you will have the opportunity to learn new things, gain job experience,
use innovative technologies, make friends, participate in health screenings,
and enjoy special activities. Most of all, as a volunteer you will have
the opportunity to nourish your heart! Studies have shown that the heart
feels the positive effects of being needed and appreciated. These studies
have also shown that volunteering promoted a positive attitude, reduces
stress and lifts the spirit. The increased physical activity associated
with volunteering has the ability to lower blood pressure, promote overall
health, improve nutrition and manage stress. (Reference: The Cornell University
