As the home improvement industry slows down and the holidays rev up, consider taking some time to give back to your community. Not only will you generate good will with those you help and meet along the way, it will leave you with a good feeling knowing you made a difference.
Random act of kindness.
Making a difference often starts small. Compliment someone at the store, pay for someone’s meal, or hand out some $5 gift cards to a local coffee shop.
Start a drive/fundraiser.
Support the less fortunate members of your community by hosting or joining a community drive. Coats, food, toys, and other amenities are in high demand during the holiday season.
Sponsor a family.
Many communities offer families in need the chance to ask for holiday help. See if your community has a list of who need a little light this holiday season.
Donate to a cause.
Do you have a charity you’re passionate about or that ties in well with your business? Send them a donation and share some information about the charity on your social channels to encourage others to help too.
Food banks, homeless shelters, animal shelters, and other locations are always seeking volunteers. See which agencies need help in your area and take some time to lend a hand!
Communities like to support home improvement contractors who get involved. Look for opportunities to give back year-round. Not just during the holidays!
