How to Give Back to Your Community During the Holidays

How to Give Back to Your Community During the HolidaysGiving back over the festive season.

As a nonprofit, you are in a unique position to really brighten the lives of your community members this holiday season. Whatever your nonprofit’s mission, you can spread the word of your efforts and deliver some festive cheer that is appreciated at this time of year. To give you a few ideas of how you can give back to your community over the holiday season, read on.

Play Santa.

Nothing feels more seasonal than the act of giving! Consider creating a list of items that people can donate to help children in your community, animals in the shelter, or others in your area. Place these lists of needed or desired gifts on your website and social media sites so that your donors can provide.

Support our troops.

Over the festive period, our troops are often forgotten. They are away from their families during the holidays and are dedicated to serving our country. You can help to remember and thank them by holding a party to write letters, send care packages, and to let them know your organization appreciates their sacrifice.

Visit a nursing home.

Gather your team of employees and volunteers to visit a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Perhaps you can sing carols, provide a small gift, or just lend an ear to the residents to brighten their day.
