5 Ways to Give Back to Your Community, by Rocklin, Roseville Area Attorney Terry L. Gilbeau

attorney businessEspecially during this time of the year businesses look for ways that they can give back to their community. This is for good reason. When you give back to your community you help your company look good, but it also helps to strengthen the community that you rely upon, which is always a good thing. Whether you are looking to give back to those in Rocklin and Sacramento or somewhere else around the country, there are plenty of options to consider. 

Here are 5 ways to give back to your community:

  1. Hold a drive. There are plenty of charities that are in need of food, toys, and other items to help those in need in your community. At your place of business, hold a canned food or toy drive, and then donate the items collected to area charities.
  2. Adopt a family. If you can, adopt a couple of area families that are in need of a little help this season. Provide them with a holiday basket that includes food and presents for the children in their family.
  3. Provide a scholarship. Within your community there are kids who would love to take up sports or other extra curricular activities, but their families lack the funding for them to do so. When you provide a few kids in your community scholarships, or pick up the tab, for these events, you will be helping to strengthen your community.
  4. Hold a volunteer day. Gather all your employees and have them spend time volunteering. Either everyone can meet up on one particular day, such as to work at a shelter, or they can be encouraged to give volunteer hours each year on their own.
  5. Give products for causes. Schools and other charities are often holding silent auctions in an effort to raise funds. Give them a free product or service coupon that they can put in their silent auction. It helps get your name out there, and it helps them with their fundraising efforts.

Get creative with how you give back to the community. These are only five suggestions, but there are plenty of ways to make it happen. Giving back to your community, whether it’s Rocklin, Roseville, Sacramento, or somewhere else, is always a good thing to do. You will help your company build a favorable reputation, while helping the people who you may be relying upon for their patronage. Plus, giving back to your community just helps you feel good inside as well!
