Giving back to your local community is one of the most admirable and selfless things you can do. When you take the time to put your community needs above your wants, it becomes infectious and causes others to do the same. The following are some ways you can give back to your local community this year.
Serve Meals at a Shelter
Many non-profits don’t have enough help on any given day. When they have a feeding event, they are even more disadvantaged because they don’t have enough people to help them fix and serve meals to the individuals in need of help. You can help your local non-profit by volunteering anytime they have an event, especially when they are serving food because they will likely have more people less fortunate people showing up to these events.
Volunteer on a Non-profit’s Board
Another area where non-profits have a shortage of resources is on their board of directors. The board of directors consists of individuals with unique skills that will help the non-profit function and improve throughout the year. If you have experience operating a business, then your local non-profit can likely use you on its board of directors.
Volunteer at Your Local Hospital
During the winter months, hospitals tend to see more patients. They have more patients suffering from illnesses such as the flu, so they are likely understaffed. You can volunteer your time at your local hospital, which will help them better manage the strained resources they currently have.
