Great news! Older Americans who volunteer with @SeniorCorps report living happier and healthier lives, in addition to making a difference in their communities. Visit http://seniorcorps.gov/healthyvolunteers … to learn more about the new report. #SeniorCorpsWorks #HealthyVolunteers
Older residents in MA contribute so much through volunteerism. A new @SeniorCorps study reports what we’ve known for some time – when you volunteer, you help others AND you help yourself. https://www.nationalservice.gov/programs/senior-corps/senior-corps-and-health-benefits … #MeaningAndPurpose #HealthyVolunteers #seniors #volunteering
