Volunteering Opportunities

“To play a part in the functioning of such a valuable organization offered me the personal satisfaction of contributing to a very worthwhile cause -- "making a difference." In fact, ESRA makes a huge difference not only in general terms, for the greater good, but also specifically, in its positive impact on the lives of individual volunteers, so that one can wholeheartedly concur with the opinion of most volunteers that more than to give, to volunteer means to receive. “
