Giving Back to Your Community

Updated on July 7, 2012

Reaching Out

There will always be people in need in your community and thousands of ways to help them. I love to get involved in various ways and help those in need in my community. Most recently, I helped get some coworkers involved in participating in a peanut butter and jelly drive that St Vincent de Paul was hosting to gain assistance with filling food boxes.

This page is to give ideas on ways you can actively participate and get involved in your own community and hopefully gather friends, family, and coworkers to join in for a good cause! :)
