Focus On... Giving Back

December 2019

This month we focus on giving back. The holiday season is a wonderful time to be grateful and put others first. It’s important to remember that many families go without gifts during the holiday season, and sometimes even without a hot meal or a warm place to sleep.

Giving back is truly a way for people to have a global impact when it comes to making the world a better place. Giving back also has a positive impact on ourselves. Volunteering and/or donating to important causes has been proven to show increases in physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Some ways you can give back this holiday season are by:

  • Clean out your closet and make a clothing/toy donation
  • Volunteer your time at local soup kitchens or nursing homes
  • Join a 5k run, walks, bike-a-thon or marathon to benefit a charity
