The Window Source Giving Back To Our Communities New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine
Giving back to your local community is an important civic tradition that has been alive and well for generations. When considering how you would like to help there are many options to consider. Whether you feel motivated to volunteer in the beautification of local public parks or if you wish to make more of a human connection, several organizations, charities and non-profits can help place you in the right spot.
When it comes to helping people, nursing homes are often great places to come with families. Coming to visit a senior and visit with them, play a board game or even a game of Bingo. The commitment will be minimal, but the results will be long-lasting appreciation from often overlooked members of the community. Similarly, going to a hospital to volunteer or a school can make you a valuable part of an important part of the health, well-being and education of others.
For those looking for most physical, hands-on ways to give back, signing up to collect liter from a local park or offering your services to an elderly neighbor who may need extra help in the yard are all excellent ways to become involved. As with all things, be sure to try more than one form of giving and open yourself up to more possibilities and experiences.
