"I volunteer... because the more I give, the happier I feel."
During our April SERVE month, we posed a simple question to our Freddie Mac Community Crew: "Why do you volunteer?"
This is a question with no wrong answer.
"I volunteer... because I care."
All year long, our Community Crew takes part in a range of volunteer activities across the country that support our housing mission and our longstanding focus on improving financial literacy. During our SERVE months in April and October, we turn up the heat — holding a variety of events that help our employees give, serve and impact the communities around us.
"I volunteer... because it is better to give than receive."
See below for more reasons why Freddie Mac and our partners volunteer.
