Milwaukee & Wisconsin In Tops For Volunteerism

Here is some encouraging news: according to a study conducted by the Corporation for National and Community Service, 32% of Milwaukee residents do volunteer work, placing the city as the eighth best city in the nation. The entire state of Wisconsin ranks in the same spot - number 8 .

A very encouraging part of the study is that Milwaukee ranked highly in the volunteer rates among those under 30 years of age.

During a time when it seems our governments are doing less and less to help those in need, it is important for fellow citizens to help each other out and seeing the youth stepping up and learning about opportunities they can get involved in for the rest of their life is good news indeed.
