Commissioner Maher authors op-ed 'On inspiration and volunteerism in America'

The Sun Journal published on Sun. April 4 an op-ed authored by Volunteer Maine Commissioner Zachary Maher, which discussed the role service and volunteerism can play in creating a better tomorrow.

There are many paths to volunteerism. For some it is an opportunity to try new things and meet new people while for others it is, as Wilfred Grenfell calls it, a service we render others as the rent we pay for our room on Earth. Volunteerism is a productive, direct-action means to promote economic, social and environmental transformations within our own communities. Volunteerism prepares us for future service while simultaneously raising the bar of expectations for those around us.
