“Volunteering is therapeutic to the volunteer as well as those benefitting FROM the actions of the volunteer. It’s also incredibly necessary,” said Roger, who is the cofounder of CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation, which provides assistance to families of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. “Many organizations cannot function without their volunteers.”
