Celebrate National Volunteer Month!
April is National Volunteer Month! Take the opportunity to give back to your community. Check out theses ways that you can volunteer in your neighborhood.
Clean Out The Closet.
With the coming of spring, it’s time for spring cleaning. As you go through your closet be sure to set aside gently worn clothes to give away. Collect clothes, books, and toys that you no longer use or need and donate them to your local homeless shelter. You’ll give back to the community while you tidy up your home. It’s a win-win!
Visit A Local Nursing Home.
Life can get a little stale in a nursing home. Pay a senior a visit to brighten up their day. Look into local nursing homes and see if they have any programs that allow you (or your kids) to visit.
Play At An Animal Shelter.
If you can’t adopt an animal in need, do the next best thing. Volunteer your time to play with animals at the shelter. It’s great for them to get out and socialize and it’s great for you to play with furry little friends.
Care For Our Troops.
Write a letter thanking our service men and women for serving in the military. Take your actions a step further and help make them a care package. Often soldiers are sent off to foreign lands far from the comforts of home. A little something from home can go a long way to help brighten a soldier’s day. Additionally, you can visit soldiers that have returned at your local VA hospital.
Clear Out The Pantry.
As you finish up your spring cleaning, don’t forget to sort through your pantry. Be sure to set aside non-perishable foods to donate to your local food bank.
