No matter how we choose to give back to our world, volunteer service is a duty and honor bestowed upon us all. By freely donating time, expertise, money, or material resources, YOU can make the world a better place.
In Volunteering for Jamaica, Donald G. Morgan documents the many ways that
volunteering can benefit a community—done locally or abroad—and how his own efforts have benefitted Jamaica. By giving an account of his service on behalf of Jamaica, Morgan appeals to all Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica to give voluntary service and to appreciate the value of voluntary service in nation building.
