Plan a Volunteer Activity
Choose a good cause where you, your association, brokerage or organization can make a real difference. Then, plan a volunteer activity and rally your members, agents, and colleagues to participate and serve as shining examples in your community.
Looking for ways to make a difference? Consider:
- Call your favorite nonprofit and ask what you can do to help.
- Volunteer with your local Boys & Girls Club.
- Organize a neighborhood cleanup.
- Run a food drive for your local pantry.
- Plan a meal tree for a neighbor in need.
- Offer to walk the dogs at a shelter.
- Offer your skill or hobby: sewing, coaching, teaching art.
- Volunteer for a Habitat for Humanity build.
- Ask a school/place of worship/nonprofit if you can help garden, weed, or trim.
- Sort donations at a food bank or thrift shop.
- Gather a group to serve a thank-you lunch to first responders, teachers, healthcare workers.
- Assemble holiday gift bags for nursing home residents or kids in the hospital.
- Plan a Career Day for high school students.
