It Is the Season of Giving! Here Is How You Can Give Back

How to Give BackGive back to your community during the season for giving!

The season is giving us upon us (Thanksgiving, anyone?), and now is the perfect time to help your local community and those in need. Whether you have limited time, money, or supplies on your hands, there is more than one way to give back.

Check out these ways on how you can give back during the season of giving!

Volunteer at Your Local School

Teachers are overworked and stressed, especially in the build up to the holidays. You can volunteer at your local school to read stories to little ones, monitor outdoor activities, chaperone field trips, or spend a Saturday tidying up the school grounds!

Visit a Senior Center

Many nursing homes are full of lonely seniors. As you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving, think of those without loved ones around them. Spend some time at a senior center, becoming a companion to the residents. You may learn something about life from those who have already traveled the journey before you!

Help At An Animal Shelter

Do you love your furry four-legged friends? Roll up your sleeves and dedicate some time to a local animal shelter. Choose to adopt a pet from a shelter, donate pet food, and help out walking the dogs or cleaning the kennels.

Donate to a Local Food Bank

Food pantries are always looking for non-perishable items to feed the needy and homeless. Simply pick up a few extra items the next time you are out grocery shopping. Better yet, buy the supplies for a small Thanksgiving dinner to donate to those who are without.

Give to a Non-Profit Organization

Look for a local non-profit organization that desperately needs your financial aid. Choose one that aligns with your beliefs so that you can feel good about giving to such a good cause!
