Do you like to Organize? Throw parties? Decorate? Cook or bake? Work with tools? Talk on the phone? Sing? Are you good with details? Put your talents to good use!
By donating your time and talent to the Bonifas Arts Center, you are shaping the kind of community you want to live in. Volunteering creates a healthy community BUT it can benefit YOUR health as well.
Did you know that current research has established a strong relationship between volunteering and health? Those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.

Are you a young adult entering the workforce? Volunteer experience looks great on your resume. According to Jane Finkle, a career consultant and founder of Career Visions, “Volunteer experience demonstrates your interest in building community and the likelihood that you will be a good citizen in the workplace.”
Every year the Bonifas celebrates their volunteers by providing them brunch and a gift at the annual Volunteer Appreciation. This year it is scheduled for Wednesday, November 30 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
We greatly appreciate all our volunteers and all that they do for us. We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for their hard work and dedication.
Stop by the Bonifas Arts Center, or call to find out how you can put your talents to good use at your local community arts center.
