What gifts are you giving this holiday season? As you know many Americans have started holiday shopping. Many of us hunt for online bargains spending hours researching the perfect gift for a family member or close friend. Some of us wait in long lines and are in a rush to get home to start wrapping that perfect holiday gift. But have you thought about volunteering on Christmas for a local charity this holiday season?
Volunteering is a truly rewarding experience and is a gift that means so much to those that are less fortunate. There are many organizations that need help this Christmas season including churches, homeless shelters, hospitals, animal shelters, and much more.
This year I had an awesome opportunity to volunteer at a local church called Ecclesia. Our church was moving to another location in downtown Houston at 1100 Elder Street. The new location required a lot of volunteers to assist with sweeping, mopping, window cleaning, landscape maintenance, setting up furniture, and much more. I am proud to say that I joined over 400 volunteers with assisting the church and it was a rewarding experience to give back to the community.
This Christmas season why not help your community? Yes it takes time out of your day, but I guarantee you it will be a very rewarding experience. Check around your local area for charity organizations that need volunteers. Check out https://www.volunteermatch.org/ for a listing of organizations that need your help.
We enjoy helping our customers each and every day.
