Pay Tribute this September 11 and Make a Difference
Financial Help Services, Inc. reminds American citizens that the National Day of Service and Remembrance is a great chance to give back while saving money.

From taking 30 minutes out of your day to read a book to young children to spending 8 hours assisting in the reconstruction of a damaged house, people across the country are performing good deeds in honor of those who rose in service on that memorable day. Last year over 47 million people volunteered, and this year experts say that more people will be partaking in events throughout the day. What’s better is that volunteering can save you money as you will be partaking in activities for free instead of paying to be entertained.
“Not only does volunteering make you feel good, but it also allows you to keep some money in your wallet,” says Director of Operations at Financial Help Services, Alex Prado. “As part of our tribute to those fallen victims and survivors community education initiative, we teach citizens about the importance of saving money. One of the best ways to do so is by volunteering. Not only will you be serving your community, but you will have fun without having to pay for it, unlike you would have to do for most entertainment.”
Financial Help Services wants citizens all over the county to come together today to reinforce the unity and togetherness that our country was founded on. Here are some reasons why you should make the time to give back:
· Volunteering brings people together. Volunteering brings together people of all different walks of life in the effort of working towards one united goal.
· Volunteering strengthens the community. Volunteers donate their time to helping people and the community by becoming mentors to youth, beautifying the community with beach cleanups, building wheelchair ramps for people who can’t afford to add
· Volunteering is free. Volunteering can be fun and can keep you entertained throughout the day. If you compare that to a $13.00 ticket for a 2-hour movie plus expensive movie theater snacks, you could save almost $30 while taking part in an enriching experience.
· Volunteering is good for your health. Volunteering can reduce stress by allowing you to focus on someone or something other than yourself reducing tension that can produce migraines and high blood pressure. It can also strengthen the immune system by providing you with joy and a higher level of optimism when it comes to the meaning of life.
