Is your joy mixed with drywall mud? Can you find deep satisfaction from teaching geography to a kid? Could one of the hardest days of your life also be one of the best?

Almost without fail, the face of volunteering wears an ear-to-ear smile … and the face of volunteering is everywhere at Jackson Healthcare. From the beginning, Jackson Healthcare has welcomed associates to participate in a multitude of volunteer opportunities that benefit people with disadvantages. You can help build a house, spend a week in a Honduran medical clinic, work with service dogs in training, or serve another charity that you admire. Jackson provides encouragement in the form of matching financial donations, or a cash donation for each hour of your service.*

It’s not because we want accolades as a company. It’s simply because there’s nothing like the bone-deep fulfillment that comes from making a difference in the life of someone who needs help. It makes their life better, and it makes our hearts grow just a bit bigger and sweeter. And it makes our world – which can some days be way too dark – a little bit brighter.

Hundreds of Jackson Healthcare associates volunteer on a regular basis. Ask around, and you’ll hear some amazing stories. Then take the next step. Check out this list of some of the charities that your colleagues have served. There’s a contact listed with each group. Wouldn’t it feel good to discover what your joy is mixed with?
