There is no better way to end the year than by giving back to your community. Here are a few simple steps you and your family can take this holiday season to make a difference in the lives of individuals experiencing hardships.
The best way for an immediate impact is by volunteering. With the holidays right around the corner, there are multiple opportunities to have an impact in your community. Visit a nearby soup kitchen and help serve individuals a warm meal or check your local community center for gift distributions to children in need or holiday parties for senior citizens.
2. Gifts That Give Back
Many brands and stores donate a percentage of purchases to an organization that helps those in need. Many stores will also provide shoppers with an opportunity to donate a small amount during checkout and be featured on their “wall of fame” throughout the holiday season. Some credit cards also donate a percentage of purchases during the holidays. While you finish your last minute Christmas shopping, consider shopping at one of these supportive stores.
Even the smallest cash donations go a long way in assisting those in need. At Delivering Good, for every $10 that is donated, we are able to distribute over $100 worth of brand new product to someone in need. Imagine how great it would feel to know that you are helping another human get a fresh start he or she so desperately needs.
