Marlboro, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/11/2018 -- The American Children's Society, Inc., has made it their mission to support children and families of children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. They offer clothing, food educational, and emergency assistance programs that are designed to provide temporary assistance to those in need. They are the best place to donate a car because their special transportation assistance program gives the donated vehicles to underprivileged families.

Donating is one way people can help others, but sometimes people are not in a position to donate. Donations don't have to be monetary, though; time is a valuable thing, and those who have enough to share can make a difference in the world. Volunteering one's time can provide people with a world of benefits like improving one's mental health.

Volunteering can improve the mental health by increasing one's happiness. Helping others makes people feel good; this feeling comes from the increase of dopamine that is released in the brain when we help others. An increase in dopamine in the brain results in an increase in happiness for the volunteer.

A person's self-confidence can be improved by volunteering their time to others. Volunteers gain a sense of purpose and self-worth by knowing that they are appreciated and valued by those they are helping.

This boost in confidence and happiness can also decrease stress, anxiety and the risk of depression. By building a strong social network through volunteering, volunteers will gain a support system to help them through difficult times.

Donating to the American Children's Society, Inc., is an excellent way for people to get involved and give back. Those who would like more information on how to donate a car in Trenton, NJ should call 866-289-1206 or visit
