MOMSEVERYDAY -- Volunteer opportunities abound, whether it's at your child's school, your place of worship or your favorite non-profit. But it seems like it's always the same people who raise their hand to help.
Recently the MomsEveryday panel discussed volunteer burnout. Here's what they had to say.
School Counselor Danielle Herzog: "I think you have to be particular of what you're picking and not just saying "yes" because you want to help."
Moms Panelist Fida Georges: "And it's so hard to say "no," but the burnout is real. I mean, it is real and I feel it all the time. So how do you say "no" and how do you not feel guilty about it?"
MomsEveryday Executive Producer Pam Tauscher: "You can't save the school. If there's only so many volunteers, then all of us have to figure it out. 'Maybe we don't need as many things. Maybe we don't need that extra craft fair.'"
According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, only about 1 in 4 Americans volunteered at least once last year.
