Utah leads in volunteering

I rag on Utah for doing a lot of quirky (stupid) things. Sometimes they should get credit for doing things really well.

For the fifth year in a row, Utah leads the country in the percentage of people who volunteer and also in the number of hours volunteered. The state average had 22% of the population donating some time. Utah doubled that with 44%. Second place, Iowa, was a good ways behind with 37%.

GO UTAH!

If you have any interest in reading about all this, they have some nice info at www.volunteeringinamerica.gov.

Wonder what state was dead last? Why New York of course....
