This Thanksgiving, show your thanks by giving back to others.
Thanksgiving is a time to step back and really appreciate all the blessing in your life. However, it’s also important to recognize that not everyone is as lucky as you. This Thanksgiving, make a point to provide assistance to those who need it the most. Here are some ways you can give back this season.
Support a Worthwhile Charity
One of the easiest ways to give back this year is by donating to a cause that you believe in. Whether you feel strongly about supporting our veterans or providing medical aid for the impoverished, there’s bound to be a charity or organization that is deserving of your donations.
Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen
For a more hands-on way to serve your community, try volunteering at a local soup kitchen. This is also a great activity to undertake with your children to show them the importance of giving back. It’s important to keep in mind that soup kitchens need volunteers year-round, so don’t just limit your assistance to the holiday season.
Visit a Retirement Home
Unfortunately, it’s not possible for many retirement home residents to return home for the holidays. To make matters worse, many residents do not receive visitors during this time of year. Make sure that no one feels alone this Thanksgiving by dropping in and giving the gift of company and conversation.
Pull Up a Chair at Your Table
Another way to make sure that everyone feels welcome and surrounded by loved ones is by inviting people over for Thanksgiving. If you have a lonely relative or a neighbor that’s far from home, offer them a seat at your table this Thanksgiving. Though this may seem like a minor thing, your kindness and hospitality will make a difference for everyone enjoying your holiday festivities.
These are just a few of the many ways that you can give back this holiday season. Make sure you do your part to give everyone a truly happy Thanksgiving.
