American Legend Homes knows how important it is to give back to the community. Today is International Day of Charity and, in the DFW area, there are a variety of ways of showing your support. Here are some ways that you and your whole family can celebrate this important day:
1. Donating items
One easy way to give back is by simply cleaning out your closet and taking any gently used items to a local nonprofit like local Goodwill. This organization, which supports people with disabilities and disadvantages through educational programs, training and job placement, is always accepting donations that can help those in need.
2. Donating your time
Press pause on your life and spend a day volunteering at a local nursing home, school, church, animal shelter or food pantry. It’s the perfect way to show the community you are ready and available to give your full support. If you don’t know where to start, visit Volunteer Now, a local organization that can find the perfect volunteer match for you. They have volunteer opportunities for families, individuals, couples and corporations all over the DFW area. Whatever your interests are, they can help you find a match to help others.
3. Donating funds
If you are so moved, you can also donate funds to a local nonprofit. This Year’s North Texas Giving Day is September 23. The day is designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform. Browse the North Texas Giving Day website for information about nonprofits, read about the history of the initiative and find the perfect place to lend your financial support.
Giving back can be as simple or extensive as you want it to be. Even the smallest acts can make a huge difference in the long run.
