Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

5 ways to give back to your community this holiday season.

5 ways to give back to your community this holiday season.

 

  1. Donate food–Take this opportunity to clean out your pantry of any canned or non-perishable items that your family does not need — or fill a shopping cart with canned goods and bring them to your local food bank. Not sure where that is at? Click the link below to find your local food bank.

  2. Adopt a pet–Maybe you cannot adopt a pet, but you can donate your time at a local animal shelter. Whether it’s walking dogs, socializing cats, or even just donating items that they may need.

  3. Adopt a “Grand-Friend”–Volunteer at your local senior center and spend some time with an older person that may not have family near them around the holidays.

  4. Become a “Santa”–Donate gifts for kids from families that may not be able to provide Christmas gifts. You can also donate to Toys for Tots Foundation.

  5. Grow and Rebuild–Plant a community garden in your neighborhood. Or you can help rebuild your community by volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.
