This time of year is about giving back to the community. It’s not just your family and friends but everyone that is part of your community. That can even include the wildlife in your area. The people at triangle direct media have demonstrated that they can give back to the community by participating in a Run for Wildlife and the Cary Run Walk Festival. It’s great to see companies giving back to the community and not just keeping all of their profits.
As a part of giving back to our community this year we have put together a few baskets to donate to families in need. We picked out a few toys to donate to children that don’t have any. We also did a culling of all of the toys in our home to make room for the new ones the kids will get for Christmas. We cleaned out three big bag fulls of toys to donate. The kids were happy to do it because we talk to them about how they can help others and make a difference even though they are so young still.
In addition to the toys we are donating, we’ve also put together food baskets and toiletries for men and women. I used coupons and got a large variety of health and beauty items for free or next to nothing. I always use these items to give to shelters. It seems silly not to take advantage of the sales when there are people in need that can use these things. Each toiletry basket has tooth brushes, tooth paste, body wash, deodorant, as well as a comb and a brush.
We’re taking everything to be donated this afternoon. We enjoy giving back to the community. How does your family or work give back the community you live in?
