Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A new study shows that all you have to do to get Louisiana natives to volunteer their time is to ask.
62% of us here in the Bayou State will volunteer their time if asked, and that's exactly what Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne did today.
A new campaign called “All We Need Is You" aims at getting more people in the community involved with volunteer projects.
“All of us can help in some manner or form,” said Dardenne. “We're just trying to make certain Louisianaians respond to the call."
The study also showed that 51% of people are already involved in some form of volunteer work. Those ranging between 35-45 years old had the highest rate of service.
