By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty- Red Stick Partners


A recent report on volunteerism was released by the Corporation for National and Community Service which found that Louisiana Residents volunteered the least with only 22.8 hours a year between 2005-2007.  Louisiana had the lowest hours of any state in regards to helping schools, hospitals, and faith-based organizations and 48th in regards to working with nonprofit groups.

Frank, not sure if you read the entire article but another interesting thing to note is that they have noted one of the causes for such low volunteer numbers were the 2005 hurricanes so that 1. either people were displaced or 2. they were focused on their own problems.  So hopefully we will start to see an increase in volunteering numbers again.
