Benefits of Volunteering
A little time makes a BIG difference!
As a volunteer at Salinas Valley Memorial, you will have the opportunity
to learn new things, make friends, and enjoy special activities. Most
of all, as a volunteer you will have the opportunity to make a difference
and 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 promotes 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 Retirement
and Well-Being Study)
