Stephanie doesn't volunteer often for campaigns, but she knew that she just couldn't sit this one out. And she wasn't deterred when it rained her first weekend out - "You make the commitment, and you just do it."
She was rewarded for her commitment, when she found people thankful and appreciative of her hard work:
"I had one guy come back after me and ask - 'Stephanie, can I come back and volunteer, how would I do that?' I think people like to know that people are there talking to them - that it's real people out there doing it."
Not only that -- She has found that volunteering is good for her physical health as much as her mental health.
"It feels good, it's fun, and this is a good way to get some exercise!"
Stephanie volunteered for the first time two weeks ago. Now she’s out there as much as possible, helping get out the vote. Are you a first-time volunteer too? Join supporters like Stephanie and get some exercise in at a canvassing event near you.
