Volunteering is a great way to positively impact your community. When you think of volunteer service, your mind usually routes to building schools in third world countries. Well, you're not wrong but volunteering can be the simplest thing right in your own backyard. Since Covid-19 has taken quite a toll on our lives, volunteering outside of your home isn't an option.
Virtual Volunteering is equally as important as your usual perception of volunteering. With volunteering virtually you can contribute via computers, tablets, or smartphones in the comfort of your own home.
