There are many fun ways your kids can give back to your local community, here’s a select few.
When people think of giving back, they automatically think of adult volunteering. While this certainly is a form of giving back to your local community, many families don’t realize that your kids can also get involved. In fact, there’s a wide range of different activities, nonprofit charities to get involved in, and fun activities for the whole family. Here are a select few, to begin with, we highly recommend getting involved in the Christmas drive – especially given the time of year!
Hold a bake sale and donate the profits to charity
One delicious and fun way to get the kids involved is to host a bake sale and donate the profits to a charity of your chosen, whether this is within the local community or on a much larger one. Besides, who doesn’t love making cakes, eating cake, and donating to a good cause?
Help out at a retirement home
This is one that can be done by adults, however, getting the kids involved can bring great joy to the elderly, especially around Christmas. Visiting a retirement home, listening to stories, playing games, and generally helping out is a great thing to do for the community. If you’re choosing to help out, be sure to contact the retirement home in advance to ensure it’s okay, specifically asking if they need any help with anything in particular. Once you have the all-clear, it’s time to do some good! Get the kids involved, and bring cheer and laughter to a different generation.
Hosting a yard sale for old toys and donating the profits to charity
There are two ways you can approach this. Firstly, you could host a yard sale and donate the profits to charity, or alternatively, you can donate the toys themselves to a children’s orphanage or charity of your choosing. It’s a great way to clean out the attic, the garage, and under the beds, all for a good cause. Think of it this way, even after the toys are long gone (which you probably forgot even existed) they will be bringing joy to children for years to come!
Finally, with it being Christmas in less than a month, getting involved in a Christmas drive is a great way to help your local community/local charities. If you don’t already know, a Christmas drive is where presents and money are donated to kids less fortunate, those who wouldn’t receive Christmas presents without the help of others. We highly recommend getting involved! No kid should go a Christmas without receiving a gift, you wouldn’t let it be your kids so don’t let it be others too! Spread the cheer, donate a gift, and enjoy the merry period.
Getting your kids involved in the local community is a great way to give back, keep things fun, and to spread laughter and smiles to others. We highly recommend getting involved in the Christmas drive, a great event to get involved in the coming weeks.
