Promoting Volunteerism

The Benefits of Volunteering

Oasis is administering a program to promote the benefits of volunteerism. Called "From Success to Significance" we are calling on Baby Boomers to engage in volunteer opportunities. Volunteers live longer, are happier and healthier, and have a broad support network of friends and acquaintances that enhances the quality of life.
