Last month we talked about Thanksgiving and we hope you all had a wonderful celebration. This entire season is a good time to think about those things that are important. For us of course, it’s our loved ones, our friends, our clients and business associates, but it’s also our community. And that community extends far beyond those that we know and love.
We work hard to support our entire community, especially those in need. Over the years we’ve supported the Glazer Children’s Museum, Junior Achievement, JCC & Federation, Tampa Bay Job Links and more, and will continue to do so. It’s at the core of all we do. We hope that if you are able, you will do the same. Here are some wonderful ways to get started.
- Contact a local school. Many schools are in need of volunteers or donations. You may be able to work with a student one-on-one or come in and help in a classroom.
- Find a local shelter. There are usually many volunteer opportunities as well as donations needed.
- Contact local agencies like United Way, Tampa Jewish Family Services, or Metropolitan Ministries to learn more about their needs. They typically have a variety of ways you can help.
- Get your kids involved. This is a great resource for finding ways to volunteer with your family and teach your children the gift of giving: http://tampabayparenting.com/article/best-places-in-tampa-bay-for-families-to-volunteer/
