Milwaukee & Wisconsin In Tops For Volunteerism

Here is some encouraging news: according to a study conducted by the Corporation for National and Community Service, 32% of Milwaukee residents do volunteer work, placing the city as the eighth best city in the nation. The entire state of Wisconsin ranks in the same spot – number 8 .

A very encouraging part of the study is that Milwaukee ranked highly in the volunteer rates among those under 30 years of age.

During a time when it seems our governments are doing less and less to help those in need, it is important for fellow citizens to help each other out and seeing the youth stepping up and learning about opportunities they can get involved in for the rest of their life is good news indeed.

About K9vin

I have been a volunteer for the humane treatment of animals in the Milwaukee area for 10 years as well as our parks system including founding the friends group for off-leash dog parks and a volunteer for The Park People. I was born in and raised near Milwaukee and have pride in the city. I want to be one of the people always striving to make Milwaukee better, starting with getting other men involved in their community.
