According to an Associated Press article published today in the St. Pete Times, both the state I currently live in and the one I am originally from rank among the lowest of all the states in volunteerism rates.
Most of you know the amount of time I put into volunteering and the importance I feel it has for the community and personal growth.
Here is the URL for the article if you are interested:
Here’s the lowest five states…
- 47. Mississippi, 24.2 percent
- 48. Florida, 21.8 percent
- 49. Louisiana, 21.2 percent
- 50. New York, 20.1 percent
- 51. Nevada, 17.5 percent
If this statistic makes you feel like we should do more, then just take some time and do something. It’s a pretty pathetic statistic to read on a Monday morning.
