Happy holidays to all! With the holidays upon us, COVID-19 is impacting many long-standing traditions of holiday fun and volunteering efforts. By thinking outside of the box, getting involved in local, safe community activities is still possible!
Ideas for giving back this holiday season:
Check out your town/county Facebook page to find volunteer opportunities
Host socially distant & responsible Christmas caroling with household members/coworkers
Host virtual fundraisers for local shelters/food pantries
Support your favorite local restaurant by ordering take-out or holiday baskets
Shop local for holiday gifts
Check-in with high-risk individuals in your neighborhood with a call, text, or letter
Donate accepted items to local charities [being conscious of COVID-19 safety protocols on what is and what is not accepted]
