Frank Monte, Centurion Founder, is a dedicated member of the community. A successful serial entrepreneur, Monte has leveraged his talent, business acumen and position in the community, and on more than one occasion, to help those in need. This was perhaps nowhere more evident than Monte’s role in the effort to recover financial compensation on behalf of local business owners affected by the devastation of 2010 BP Gulf Oil Spill.
There are many reasons, as Frank Monte of Centurion knows, for committing one’s time, energy and money to helping others. These include:
Personal Growth and Development
As Monte knows, philanthropy, no matter the size or scope of the individual’s contributions, can quickly become a source of personal development, opening the volunteer’s eyes to a larger world and demonstrating the need for compassion and support they previously didn’t know existed.
Creating a Stronger Community
Helping causes and in-need individuals in your local area helps to establish bonds and foster strength among members of your community, creating a more tight-knit local population more likely to stand together in the face of adversity.
Building a New Perspective
Volunteer opportunities have a habit of showing volunteers a whole new way of looking at things, enabling a stronger appreciation of situations and issues others are facing.
