It’s never too late to start a new tradition. Here at Morguard we highly value giving back, which is why it’s an integral part of our company culture. This holiday season, we’re asking you to participate in that culture with us. As we prepare our homes and our bellies for delicious food, we also want to prepare our hearts to give back. Our efforts to give thanks by giving back this holiday season can take place in variety of different ways. To spark your imagination, we’ve put together a list of simple things you and your family can do this Thanksgiving.
Families lacking proper access to food will be lining up throughout Thanksgiving Day for a hot meal. Be one of the smiling faces and loving hands providing them that meal by donating food to a donation center or visiting a local food bank. Any canned goods that you can donate will go a long way for these centers, as they feed hundreds of people in one day. Contact a local homeless shelter or Salvation Army for drop-off locations. You can also choose a time to volunteer at one of those locations to serve hot meals on Thanksgiving.
Pass Out Sandwiches
A fun family tradition you can start this year is passing out Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches. After your family has had their fill of turkey, potatoes and stuffing, start a sandwich-making assembly line using all of your leftovers. Be sure to buy a few extra loaves of bread and have each family member choose which food item they are in charge of. Go down the line and put together sandwiches. Either take a walk or drive around and look for people to give sandwiches out to.
We hope you’ll like this option as much as we do. Hint: it includes eating! Try something new and donate blood this holiday season. When you donate your blood, it can save up to three lives. That’s a lot of people to impact with a very small donation. The best part about it is that you have an excuse to devour some pie afterward – to get your sugar level back up!
You can support those that are giving back simply by doing a little online holiday shopping! Several nonprofits are connected to Amazon Smile, which gives a portion of your purchase price to the nonprofit of your choice whenever you buy from Amazon.
If you’re like most people, you want to save money, especially when it comes to holiday gifts. You can do so easily by shopping 12 Days of Deals on Amazon. Select the nonprofit of your choice to receive a percentage of your shopping total. It’s as simple as that! You don’t have to leave the house or miss any of the holiday fun with your family.
We’re extremely thankful this holiday season for all of our amazing residents and Morguard team! If giving back aligns with your personal values, and you think would be a good fit for a career in apartment or property management, please consider a new role with Morguard. We’re always on the lookout for new talent. We hope you all have a belly-filling and heartwarming Thanksgiving holiday!
