Ways to Volunteer During Thanksgiving to Give Back to Others

Volunteer During Thanksgiving
Volunteer During Thanksgiving

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.
