A new study takes a look at how much Rochesterians give back to others in the community.

According to a report from the Corporation for National and Community Service, Rochester is home to the second highest volunteer rates in the U.S., logging about 36 and a half hours per date. That number was determined by taking a three-year average of volunteer rates for large cities and the only city to top Rochester was Minneapolis St. Paul. 

As a state, New York didn't quite measure up, finishing 50th among all states and Washington, D.C. with only Louisiana ranking lower.
