This is a great article I found:
The amount of volunteer hours contributed by Americans is a source of national pride. Nearly 27 percent of the US adult population gave 8.1 billion hours of volunteer service worth $169 billion in 2009, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service. In fact, there may be health benefits to being a good and generous neighbor. According to a 2010 study conducted by UnitedHealthCare and VolunteerMatch, people who volunteered reported high levels of well-being, including immunity from illness, overall energy level, physical strength and phycical stamina.
