Keep the Giving Spirit Alive All Year Long

The holiday season is known to be a time of giving and gratitude. While many people take the opportunity to give back during the holidays, it’s important to remember that help is still needed even after all the glam of the season fades. With that said, we’ve composed a list of five simple ways you can give back any of the 365 days of the year:

Drive-thru surprise

The next time you go through a drive-thru, pay it forward! Pay for the person behind you at any drive-thru and make their day.

Donate monthly

Set up recurring monthly donations to an organization or cause that is special to you, even a few dollars can make a difference.

Donate blood

Help save someone’s life by donating blood or plasma if you’re eligible.

Recognize those who serve

Give a ‘thank you’ to those who serve such as police or fire departments or local military bases.

Offer your skills

Take your area of expertise and teach a class or skill to others who might value it.
