I believe that by helping others, you help yourself. By giving to the community, of your time, money, and self, you are cultivating a garden that will produce hardy fruits. I typically volunteer at my company’s Hispanic outreach on Cinco de Mayo, in which different booths are established to provide information regarding the different aspects of banking. From establishing a checking or savings account, to purchasing a home, there so are many lessons to be learned. It truly warms my heart to see so many volunteers, willing to share their knowledge with people who are hungry for this education. What better way to spend an evening or a Saturday afternoon? It is such a reward, to make a difference in someone’s life, just by giving of our most valuable resource – our time.
