The holidays are a time of caring, sharing and giving back. But often times we don’t know how exactly to lend our time, gifts or talents to help those in need. That’s why United Way of Anchorage has updated and re-issued the popular 3rd Annual Holiday Guide to Giving and Volunteering.
Inside this free downloadable resource, local businesses and individuals will find the inspiration they need to stay connected with the community and in doing so, are sure to create positive change in our neighbor’s lives.
“Whether you prefer to volunteer your time to a specific cause, provide food to a family struggling to make ends meet, or make a contribution to help further the good works of an organization that’s close to your heart, we can help you find your personal “give back” opportunity,” said Jennifer Howell, Director of Community Engagement for United Way of Anchorage.
The 2012 Holiday Guide to Giving and Volunteering features:
· Holiday Ideas – unique ways people can give their time and energy.
· Community Holiday Events – where donations, gifts and volunteering have the most impact.
· Advocacy Opportunities – simple, easy ways to support youth and families.
· Directory of Local Nonprofits – your connection to organizations and ways to help them.
