4 Ways to Give Back This Holiday Season

The holidays are a time for spending time with loved ones, giving thanks, and maybe even enjoying a well-deserved couple days off from work. It’s also a great way to think of those less fortunate, and think of ways to give back to the community. Mobilizing your company as a force for good can be one of the most rewarding things your team will do, and is a great way to add a little perspective to the holiday season.

Here are four easy ways your company can give back this year.

  • Food drive – The beauty of the food drive is that it’s so simple. Simply leave a box somewhere in the office and encourage your employees to bring in a few non-perishable food items to put in it. At the conclusion of the drive, donate it to a local food pantry to help create a holiday meal for needy families.
  • Team outing – Teambuilding can be a great way not only to strengthen your company, but give back. Use a team outing for a charitable cause—volunteer at a soup kitchen or center that aids the homeless, or spread some cheer at a local nursing home. The possibilities are endless.
  • Company/Employee Charity Match – A great way to raise money for a noble cause is to identify a particular charity, and then have the company match employee contributions. It’s a great way to encourage employee donations, and the money adds up quickly!
  • Work within your community – If you’re still stumped, don’t worry—there’s help out there! There are plenty of charity registries, like CharityNavigator.org to help you find a cause your company is passionate about.
