Give Back To Your Local Community

With the holiday season approaching, many people are starting to think about what they can do to give back to their local community.

Not every volunteer effort has to change the world. It’s often the little things people do for one another than have the greatest impact.  Your effort to help someone can make a world of a difference to them. Sentry Insurance gives back to its community by donating laptop computers to local schools, collecting school supplies for Project Fresh Start and raising money forUnited Way.

Here are a few ways to get involved and give back, at holiday time and year-round.

  • Participate in Holiday Mail for Heroes
  • Help an elderly neighbor rake leaves, shovel snow, or do home repairs
  • Coach a Little League team
  • Donate gently-used clothing and furniture rather than throw it out
  • Volunteer your time at an animal shelter
  • Hold a canned food drive and deliver the goods to a soup kitchen
  • Join Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • Visit a senior center
  • Repaint a playground
  • Get involved with Habitat for Humanity
  • Volunteer at a church
  • Give to Toys for Tots
  • Rake leaves for United Way’s Make a Difference Day on October 22.
