1-Donate Money

If you can donate money, be specific about your interests and get a receipt for tax purpose. It doesn’t have to be substantial. Give what you can and as often as you can.

 

2-Promote Local Businesses/Charities

Buying local as often as you can. If you own a website promote your favorite local business(es), or write an article about it.

3-Donate Food, Clothes, and Furniture

You can give non-perishable canned and boxed items to your local food bank. You can also donate clothes, shoes, and household items to charities. I try to bring mine to Value Village at least once every 3 months.

Participate in construction projects that benefit disadvantaged residents.
