Report: Wis. ranks 8th in volunteer rates


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new report says Wisconsin ranks among the top 10 states in volunteer rates.

The Corporation for National & Community Service, a federal agency that promotes public service, reviewed states' volunteer rates between 2010 and 2012. It found 35.6 percent of Wisconsin residents did volunteer work over that span, ranking them eighth among all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Utah was first at 43.8 percent and Minnesota second at 37.7 percent.

The study also reviewed volunteer rates in large cities. Milwaukee ranked third in the country with 33.6 percent of residents participating in some volunteer work. Minneapolis-St. Paul was first at 36.7 percent. Rochester, N.Y., was second at 35.1 percent.
