Want to improve your health in 2019? Volunteer!
Since 2004, Catholic Charities’ Common Good Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) has engaged more than 1,000 volunteers who serve thousands of people in southern Minnesota day- in and day-out. Together, they are building better lives for their neighbors by addressing gaps in services related to affordable housing, independent living for seniors, intergenerational connections, affordable food and economic security. Now, new research demonstrates that the volunteers themselves are enjoying health benefits because of their service!
