Volunteering is one of those commitments that many of us put off until later… We often don’t realize just how much volunteering can be beneficial for us and for those we are helping. What if the time just before the holidays was the perfect opportunity to start?
In a society that is too often individualistic, and despite the abundant means of communication available, solitude is omnipresent. If you sometimes feel alone, or wish you had a purpose in life or to take up new challenges, you may want to consider volunteering!
It can sometimes be difficult to balance our personal, family and professional lives. Lack of time is often the reason given for putting off until later our good intentions regarding volunteering. Yet, just a few hours can sometimes make all the difference. Although volunteering is known to be beneficial for persons who are retired in particular, people of all ages can benefit from it.

The holidays are a golden opportunity to question ourselves about our social involvement. A simple and accessible way to pay it forward is to participate in “La grande guignolée des médias’’ which will take place from November 25 to December 24, 2013. Be it as a volunteer or as a donor, there’s no doubt that your contribution will make a big difference. This event takes place in numerous areas in Quebec each year. Be sure to listen for the different designated collection points announced in the media. All of the goods collected (non-perishable goods, money, household items, etc.) will be used to reach out to the less fortunate for the holidays and the start of the new year. In addition to going to the designated collection points, you can also bring your generous donations or your collected goods to your Jean Coutu pharmacy. More than 300 of our pharmacies participate in this initiative. It is also possible to make a donation by telephone, mail or internet. Here is the contact information:

Volunteering is an opportunity to give a little of yourself and of your time. Why not take advantage of this time of the year to bring joy, a smile and your sense of commitment to the service of those in need? Who know, maybe your benevolent activities will provide you with an opportunity to form new lasting friendships and perhaps even a soul mate? In any event, suffice it to say that the benefits you will gain will go over and above your wildest imagination.
