Ways to Give Thanks in Your Community


Ways to Give Thanks in Your Community

While enjoying a great meal and watching football is certainly a big part of Thanksgiving, this coming holiday season is really about expressing gratitude for the people in your life. And while those people are most likely your friends and family members, this year, consider branching out to include some of your community members—like teachers, sanitary workers, neighborhood baristas and more—in your 2021 recognition lists.

From buying a random stranger coffee to leaving a kind review on your favorite local businesses’ social media pages, there are several small ways you can give thanks to your community this season! 

11 Small Acts of Kindness to Perform in Your Community This Season:  

  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or food bank
  • Donate financially to a community organization
  • Buy lunch for emergency workers and first responders
  • Set out gifts for your postal and sanitation workers
  • Pick up litter in your neighborhood
