Give thanks this season by helping out your local community in need.
Thanksgiving and the festive season is a time when we all gather around with friends, family, and loved ones and appreciate what we have. You may have gorged yourself with fine food and football on Thanksgiving, only to engage in the madness that is Black Friday and getting a jump-start on your holiday shopping. We encourage you to take a moment to consider those less fortunate than yourself and help those in need. In the winter months and in the season in which we give thanks, the perfect time for giving thanks by giving back is now!
Here are some inventive ways in which you can help out those in need!
It’s the season of being with your family – so why not help those without one? You can sign up for the Meals on Wheels program, which provides a healthy meal for seniors living alone. What’s more, a home-delivered meal includes a few moments of companionship, a health check, and a home safety check.
Volunteer at an animal shelter
It’s important that we don’t forget our four-legged friends this time of year! You can help by donating dog or cat food, adopting a pet for life, or volunteering at a shelter in your free time. Find shelters that need your help!
Support a non-profit organization in your community
Find a charity or non-profit organization whose mission and message resonate with you. Whether you lend financial support or choose to volunteer, charity organizations are successful because of the generosity of people like yourself.
Stock your local food pantry
Helping is as simple as picking up a few extra items next time you’re grocery shopping. Local food pantries are always looking for non-perishable items like coffee, tea, condiments, and toiletries. If you’re looking for your local food pantries, check out this site.
