Volunteers often become ideological people. Those who are willing to freely help others to make the world a little bit better and kinder. Volunteers are an invaluable resource in helping social services and non-profit organizations. Examples of such organizations like UN, red cross, us Peace Corps, Greenpeace.
There are many social groups who need support-pensioners, families with low income, orphans, disabled, sick people undergoing rehabilitation, etc. Each of these groups requires different help.
To help the needy financially, volunteers will be collecting clothes, toys, various kitchen utensils and all that are willing to sacrifice other volunteers. Then distribute all the collected items at the families of people in need. Recall that for their work the volunteers do not receive material rewards. They gain experience and moral satisfaction.
There is another kind of help. For example, orphans, the disabled, and other categories that the state has in the specialized agencies. Volunteers organize entertainment and educational events. They put on plays in orphanages, organize Amateur performances in orphanages and hospitals, conduct educational activities for children and even organize computer courses for seniors. Volunteers give their time and attention to people who need support.
Protection and environmental protection
Volunteering is not limited to helping people. Charities willing to protect nature, homeless animals and order. Volunteers in such projects play a key role. How many homeless cats and dogs wandering the streets? If you collect at least part of them in nursery, you will need a lot of effort to maintain and care for the animals. To cope with this task to help the volunteers.

In Thailand charities abandon efforts to help wild elephants and other jungle animals that suffer from industrialization or are an endangered species. Without volunteers none of this project would not have been able to implement.
