Tis the season of giving
The holidays are a joyful time for friends and family to show how much they love and appreciate one another. Lights are hung, dinner is prepared and holiday spirit fills the air. This season is a time to come together and not only receive blessings, but to give to those less fortunate. While celebrating with your friends and family, please remember this year has been extremely difficult for us all due to COVID-19. The smallest act of kindness can make a huge difference. Here are some ways you can safely be of service to others this season: 

Become a virtual volunteer
Due to safety precautions regarding COVID-19, organizations have started virtual volunteer programs. United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley has several virtual volunteer opportunities available this holiday.

Opportunities include writing encouragement cards for hospice patients and donating supplies to women’s shelters. Volunteer by clicking here or dialing 211.

Help those at risk with their holiday shopping
As we all know, shopping this season will look a little different. Not everyone feels comfortable shopping in large crowds due to the pandemic, especially those with underlying health conditions. One way to be of service to those in need is to help them with their holiday shopping. Offer to help someone in need and provide non-contact options such as an agreed drop-off location.

Donate to a local organization.
One of the best gifts you can give during this time of year is donating your time and money to support your local community. Here are a few organizations that you can donate to this holiday season:
The Coronavirus Response Fund
The Salvation Army
Toys for Tots
United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley
Feeding the Valley Food Bank
Habitat for Humanity
Open Door Community House

Whatever you do to help someone in need this holiday season can truly make a difference. Making a difference in someone else’s life may just be the best gift you get yourself this year!

As a special reminder: save your holiday cooking grease and bring it to one of our eleven drop off locations or to our Grease Recycling and Pharmaceutical Disposal event on Jan 9, 2021! For details, click here.
