Ways to Volunteer During Thanksgiving to Give Back to Others

Opt to have your family volunteer during Thanksgiving to give back to the community. Here are some ways you can be a blessing during this holiday season.

Volunteer for a Public Thanksgiving Dinner

Working at a soup kitchen or other venue gives your family the opportunity to help the homeless while working alongside them. The First Church of God on 58th Avenue and Our Savior Lutheran Church on Sixth Avenue are opening their doors to the public this Thanksgiving season.

Cook for a Shelter

If you and your family cannot set aside the whole day to serve food at a Thanksgiving meal, you can opt to bring food instead. Local shelters and other sites are always looking for side dishes on Thanksgiving. Check out places like those listed above, as well as Mustard Seed Ministries’ Thanksgiving Feast and the Homeless Family Center.

Visit a Nursing Home or Hospital

Many sick and elderly individuals do not get to spend the Thanksgiving season with their loved ones, so it’s worthwhile brightening someone’s day by paying them a visit.

Donate Blood

Donating blood at any time of the year can always save a life. Thanksgiving is a convenient time to do so because you can fill up on food before and after you go to keep your strength up.

Donate

Donating money is as good as donating time, blood, or anything else. Many of the organizations and locales listed above are always looking for donations that can go towards the cost of caring for the poor.

Whether you give of your time, money or blood, you are being a blessing to others. We hope that you take advantage of the available opportunities to give back to our local community. Happy Thanksgiving from your family at Dependable Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi Owners Day Leads to Charitable Donations

Mitsubishi Owners Day Leads to Charitable Donations

Each year, Mitsubishi hosts Mitsubishi Owners Day–twice. One of the Owners Days is for the west coast and the other is for the east coast. What makes these days special? Mitsubishi owners from all over the country come together to show off their vehicles, celebrate their brand, and raise money for good causes. That’s because 100% of the proceeds for Mitsubishi Owners Day go to a charitable cause.

 

This year, the West Coast MOD was held on July 8th in Cypress, California, at the brand’s North American headquarters. With the money raised from participants in the event, Mitsubishi was able to make a donation to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which serves 250,000 hungry people in the area.

 

The East Coast MOD was held more recently on August 19th at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The money raised at this event went to the Wounded Warriors Project, which empowers injured veterans and their families.

 

“Both of these influential organizations work to improve the well-being of their respective communities,” remarked Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Mitsubishi Motors North America. “Mitsubishi Motors is committed to giving back and we trust that the donations made will help further their efforts.”

 

In total, more than 5,000 people participated this year, which marks the 100th anniversary for Mitsubishi. We at Dependable Mitsubishi are grateful to all those who participated.
