KANSAS RANKED 4TH IN THE COUNTRY FOR VOLUNTEERISM

According to the Volunteering and Civic Life in America report, released in December 2012, Kansas has moved from #7 to #4 in the volunteer ranking among the 50 states. More than 807,000 Kansans served more than 82 million volunteer hours, which is valued at $1.5 billion. This year’s report found that one in three Kansans (36.4%) volunteered at an organization in 2012. This surpasses the national average of one in four Americans volunteering and further demonstrates that volunteering remains at the heart of Kansas. Visit VolunteeringInAmerica for the full report.
