Volunteerism and Hidden Benefits
time and efforts on behalf of something or somebody else, is
rewarding to your own well-being. The old saying:" You'll get more out
of it than what you put in" is true in all sense of the meaning. The
opportunity to spend some quality time working on a park project or
program gives you a real sense of belonging and accomplishment.
Liberty State park has many opportunities for the public to
participate in their projects or programs. If you like to meet and
greet the public at the Historic Terminal Building information kiosk
or to really get hands-on gardening at the many garden plots
currently being tended by a group of dedicated and committed people
in the park, you will find a number of like-minded people
volunteering their time as well.
Why would you want to volunteer your valuable time to be involved
in the workings of this park? Personally, it puts me closer to people
I would not have met in my every day activities and it gives me
satisfaction to know that I am making a difference in their lives and
the park's environment. If you are still interested, don't be afraid
to call the park office and talk to them about what opportunities
there are in the park to volunteer and have fun at it.
