volunteer news

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

A recent survey conducted by Atlantic Monthly and GlaxoSmithKline showed that individuals across all socioeconomic brackets felt that a community resource they lacked was “kind, supportive neighbors.” The study also suggested a solution to the problem: volunteering. American communities with “collective efficacy,” or a willingness amongst neighbors to join forces to protect and promote a common good, demonstrate lower rates of depression, obesity, and overall mortality than the national average.

If you live in the Greater Pittsburgh Area, consider donating your time for the good of public broadcasting. Have fun while meeting other people who care about making our community a better place to live. Won’t you be our neighbor?
