Holiday Donation Ideas for your Community

December 22, 2019

The holidays are the best time of year for communities to come together and help each other. This holiday season, you may be looking for ideas on how you can help those less fortunate.

Whether you’re looking to make a small impact, or you want to plan something big, this blog will have ideas on how you can help out those in need.

Organize a Fundraiser At Your Office

If you have a cause you’re passionate about, organizing a fundraiser can be a great way to make a sizeable impact.

Whether it’s for the homeless community, the disabled, or even a fight against a disease, a fundraiser will not only raise money, but also spread awareness on the issue.

Obviously, you don’t want to be asking for massive donations. Simply inform people about your fundraiser, maybe throw a little office party if you can, and let people chip in what they can. Both you and the donors will feel good knowing you did something to combat a problem in the community.

Bake and Donate

Who doesn’t like some freshly baked treats? Whether or not you’re an avid baker isn’t crucial to throwing together some food to donate.

A way to make this process more fun and increase its scope is by inviting a few friends to join you. You and all your friends can pick a food to bake, and maybe even have a friendly competition in regards to presentation and taste.

Homeless shelters, schools, and other organizations will typically be happy to accept your donation. The best part of baking food to donate? You get to sample the merchandise!

Classic Donations

While maybe not the most fun of all the options, clothing donations go a long way during the holiday season, particularly because of the cold weather.

Jackets, blankets, and sweaters are among the most sought-after donations by local shelters. To keep with the holiday theme, you can also consider donating toys and games to shelters and schools.

Getting creative with your donations can be an awesome way to get into the holiday spirit while also doing something positive. Use one of these ideas, or come up with your own. But whatever you do, don’t forget to have fun!
