The holidays are a great way to bring together the community and family. They’re also especially good for volunteering and helping those in need. During the winter months, it’s important to remember that not everyone is in a stable financial situation. Something that can be done is volunteering at local shelters. Not only does this feel good to help people, but it feels good to actively positively influence the community.Ways to help include: donating warm clothes or toys or even making food for those on the streets. To be honest, anything can help. It’s even possible that your positive actions may even carry on as a “butterfly effect of kindness.” Sometimes the holidays can be a very rough time for those less fortunate, so actively being conscious of your actions makes a big impact.What’s also great? Your positive actions can be looked at as community service for colleges, so you’re also helping yourself. Ultimately, this time of year is a way to reflect on personal decisions and consider others around you.
