Data On Volunteering Reveals The Truth

In the United States 61.8 million Americans or 26.4 percent of the adult population contributed 8 billion hours of volunteer service worth $162 billion. 39.5% of the total volunteers are from faith-based organizations. The faithful community of America is fueling the care of poverty level citizens. 83% of people who attend church volunteer in a community service, and 91% help in some way or another. People of faith are the driving force that provides for the needy. I hope that these statistics will be considered as government contemplates socialized medicine.
