“WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR HEART TO GIVING, ANGELS FLY TO YOUR DOOR.”
PRIDE Museum volunteers to connect with the community and make it a better place. Volunteerism helps strengthen our ties to the community and broadens our support network by exposing us to people with common interests, neighborhood resources, including fun and fulfilling activities.
Volunteerism provides us the opportunity to make more friends and contacts and increases our social and relationship skills.
In a valley swelling with such a rich history of accomplishment, PRIDE Museum is proud to share our commitment to preserve and interpret the contributions of African American pioneers in technology and science in Silicon Valley.
“Generous behavior is closely associated with reduced risk of illness and mortality and lower rates of depression. Studies demonstrate that if you engage in helping activities as a teen, you will still be reaping health benefits 60 or 70 years later.
You know that feeling – the warm, fuzzy one you get when you give a gift? Turns out, it’s good for your health. Research shows that giving a gift, as well as volunteering or donating to charities, have a positive impact on your physical and mental health and can contribute to a longer life.
Giving and volunteering help reduce stress and depression and also promotes healthy social connections and a sense of purpose.”
