When It Comes To This, Almost No One Beats Idaho
This is something awesome to be good at. Compared to the rest of the country, there are very few states that do this better than Idaho.
1 out of every 3 Idaho residents volunteers for something
The Corporation for National & Community Service has announced that Idaho is #5 in the US for volunteering. Here's the breakdown of how Idahoans give of their time and resources.
When you look at the many ways that Idahoans try to help, it never ceases to be impressive. Over half of the state donates at least $25 to charity. 1 out of every 3 Idaho residents volunteers for something. It sounds simple, but how many people really take time out of their everyday lives to do something selfless?
Kudos also to our neighbors to the south in Utah who are ranked #1 in volunteering.
The whole idea of this report is to encourage others to pitch in. If you would like more information about how to get involved, check out the official government website.
