The Giving Season Offers a great opportunity for families to do good together12/01/2017
For most people, the holiday season is a happy time filled with the joy of being with those we love. But, it’s also a time to remember those of us who are less fortunate. At Libman, we uphold American values like helping those in need and believe in the importance of passing along these values to our children and grandchildren.
This season, consider gathering your family together to do something special to help others. After all, giving back is one of the best ways to spread holiday cheer. So many organizations can use volunteer help at this time. We’ve come up with some ideas to make an impact in your community.
- Local foodbank. Foodbanks are in extra need of items during the holidays. Consider going through your pantry to select items that you together can choose to donate. Or, volunteer to help sort and pack items at the foodbank.
- Decorate holiday cards for soldiers overseas. Gather around the dining room table to send the spirit of the holidays to those troops who are deployed this season. Check out Operation Gratitude’s website for details.
- Animal shelters. Let’s not forget about the animals who don’t have a home for the holidays. Most animal shelters need volunteers to help walk dogs or clean cages.
- Blanket drive for the homeless. Winter is a brutal time for those living outside. Your family can help organize an initiative to gather donated blankets from friends, family and neighbors to drop off. Spread it on social media.
- Visit a neighbor. Sometimes it’s easy to overlook that which is closest to us. Do you know of any neighbors that will be alone for the holidays? Schedule a special time for you to visit them or host them at your home with some cocoa and cookies.
