Five ways to contribute to your community

1. Plant a tree

Planting a tree is a great way to contribute to your community.  You will be helping  the environment as trees release oxygen into the atmosphere—and you’ll also enjoy watching it grow!

2. Promote Local Businesses

Another way to contribute to your community is by buying locally-grown product and purchasing from independent local stores.

3. Fundraise to bring awareness for a cause

Starting a fundraiser is an effective way to (a) increase awareness of problematic issues and (b) get the ball rolling in the search for solutions.. Does your local library need some help, or does your recreation park need revamping? You can help out by raising money for something meaningful in your neighborhood.

4. Clothing Drive

We all have clothes in our closets and drawers that we never  use. What better way to recycle them than hosting a clothing drive? Donating clothes is a great way to free up wardrobe space as well as giving to those less fortunate.

5. Prepare and Serve Meals

Preparing meals for needy neighbors brings people together. Gather a group of friends and make easy meals to pack up and deliver to neighbors who, because of illness, age, crisis or many other reasons would benefit from your help.
