Supporting our community comes in many forms because there are so many options. It is an effective and meaningful way to give back to the society around you. Is your business involved in community service? If so, what ways do you contribute to your surrounding area? If not, what are the challenges preventing you from participating? For businesses and individuals, community service is a kind, charitable way to spend one’s time. As a bonus, it can provide your company with free and easy opportunities for networking, marketing, and spending quality time with your family and friends. It also builds trust with those in your industry.
There are several apps and online methods to find where and what is out there, and when it is available. Word of mouth is also very effective; just ask your co-workers. Volunteering your time and giving donations of any kind for a purpose with which you agree are just two of the most common types. If you are really gung-ho, you can sponsor these types of events or partner directly with those that deliver the services.
Go forth and volunteer!
