Volunteer work disparity

I saw in the research published in the NYT that Republicans are about 35% more likely than the average American to do volunteer work and that Democrats are about 20% less likely. This is worrisome. Democrats should be aware of the limits of civil society in practice to counter the accusation that they don't know about the problems they want government to solve. (Admittedly, many Democrats are teachers, health care workers etc.)
