Ways to Give Back that Feel Great

Looking for a way to make yourself feel great? That doesn’t necessarily mean going to the spa to get a facial or getting a new outfit, it can mean doing something for someone else in your community, and there are many ways to do so. 

1. Visit the Department of Veteran Affairs

You may want to offer to take a veteran to dinner or just sit with one and chat. You’d be surprised how many interesting stories they have to tell. There are other organizations besides the Department of Veteran Affairs that help those who served our country. 

2. Adopt a Pet  

Go to your local animal shelter or pet rescue center and adopt a pet. These homeless felines and canines have nowhere to go and no one to love them. You can be the one to provide both. Some of them have suffered from being in an abusive situation or near starved to death. You have the option to foster a pet, or you may opt just to donate to the facility. Remember, they rely on donations and can’t feed or nurture these animals without the generosity of others. 

3. Donate Your Unused Clothing and Other Items

Not everyone has the ability to afford clothing, furniture and other items; therefore, they make do with what very little they have. Anything you have that’s in decent condition and you’re not using can go to someone else in need. It doesn’t have to be in perfect condition either. Plus, you’ll free up space in your home, so it’s a win-win situation for everyone. 

4. Know Someone Who’s Lonely?

Maybe you have an elderly neighbor that nobody comes to visit. Even if they’re not the most pleasant of people, go spend a little bit of your time with them. It will make all the difference. 

Brock and Poole Insurance Agency gives back to the community and encourage you to do so as well. If you’d like to know more about their insurance, contact them at 901-854-9775 today.
