Increase Your Happiness

imagesAs corny as it sounds, volunteering really does make a person feel happy. Giving to one’s community gives you that “helper’s high” that can keep your spirit up for days.

Volunteering also provides a great way to meet new people and form connections with your community — two strong factors in leading a healthy, happy life.

SPU provides a variety of ways to get involved around Seattle like City Quest, Latreia, and the John Perkins Center. It could be serving at one of the homeless shelters downtown, or just picking up trash around your neighborhood. Click here to learn more about nearby opportunities.
