There are many ways that you can make a difference in your neighborhood. This weekend provide a helping hand to those in your community. Some simple ways you can help your neighbors include carrying in groceries, taking out the trash, shoveling snow, sweeping the walkways, picking up litter, and mowing the lawn.
Identify specific individuals and families in your neighborhood that could use some extra assistance or attention. Offer to tend your neighbor’s children so they can go out for the evening, invite the elderly or single adults to join your family for dinner, participate in a sub-for-Santa, or leave anonymous gifts on your neighbor’s doorsteps.
Donate or volunteer at your local food banks or soup kitchens. Help wrap and deliver gifts for needy children and military families. Improving your community doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money – it just takes action.
So take action today and provide a helping hand in your neighborhood.
