The Lind House Association benefits greatly from the unpaid support of the community to work part-time throughout the year. Our volunteers assist in a variety of ways including welcoming guests, leading tours, working in the garden, helping care for the house, assisting with special events and decorating for Christmas. We rely heavily on the help of our dedicated volunteers and invite you to be part of the John Lind House. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, please email the Association.
Studies show that volunteers are happier people:
- Being generous leads us to perceive others more compassionately; we typically find good qualities in people to whom we are kind
- Being kind promotes a sense of connection and community with others, which is one of the strongest factors in increasing happiness
- Being generous helps us appreciate and feel grateful for our own good fortune
- Being generous boosts our self-image; it helps us feel useful and gives us a way to use our strengths and talents in a meaningful way
- Being kind can start a chain reaction of positivity; being kind to others may lead them to be grateful and generous to others, who in turn are grateful and kind to others
