       Why Volunteer?

      

 

 

“Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. Volunteering and helping others can help you reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose."(helpguide.org)

 

Why Literacy?

1 in 5 adults in Western Maine struggle to read or fill out an application. Literacy affects every aspect of modern life, from filing for unemployment to helping with children's education, to getting and keeping a job, to managing health treatments. Many people don't have the skills to use email or text messaging.
