All throughout High School I always tried to get involved in various Volunteer Opportunities offered in my community. Since graduating I have made an effort to still find things I can do to better my community.

Today I am sharing a list of things that we can all do in our communities to make them a little bit of a better place, while still sticking to a budget.

1. Make some cookies and take them to a homeless shelter – A group of friend and I recently did this, and we were able to get all the supplies we needed to bake and decorate cookies for less than $20. Baking and decorating with my friends was such a fun way to spend an afternoon, and it was so nice to see peoples smiles when they saw that we were bringing in cookies

2. Make some cards – Especially if you’re an artistic person, making cards can be a really fun activity to spread a little joy around. Cards can be taken to homeless shelters, or retirement homes to let people know you’re thinking of them.

3. Buy someone a warm drink – Especially if you live somewhere chilly during the winter, a warm coffee or tea would be much appreciated on a cold day.

4. Host a care package making party – If you gather a group of friends and have each person bring a pack of heath care items, such as a multipack of tooth pastes, pads, or body wipes, then you can compile your products into goodie bags to take to a women’s shelter.

5. Host a bottle drive – With it being the holiday seasons, there are often many holiday parties. If you know of people having parties, reach out and ask if you can collect their bottles for a fundraiser! This is a great way to be able to donate to a foundation that you care about.

Thank you so much for reading, and I would love to see pictures if you do one of these activites.

Enjoy XO
