Giving back is an important part of keeping your community running, but sometimes we think we don’t have the resources to participate. The truth is everyone could give back a little more and it doesn’t have to break the bank!
Below are a few suggestions on how you can start to give back right now.
Reuse, Reuse, Reuse!
The saying is true, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and chances are you’ve got a jackpot! For starters, don’t throw out those old newspapers, bring them to a local animal shelter or wildlife rehabilitation center. The newspapers can be used to line spaces and crates, plus they are always in high demand! The animals will have one more need met, and you’ll be able to get rid of some clutter, it’s a win-win. Next, start collecting plastic shopping bags and keeping them handy for any needs around the house, such as protecting edibles, filling in gaps around pipes, and resealing paint cans.
