3 Impactful Ways to Give Back During the Holiday Season

by | Dec 19, 2022

The year-end holiday season is a time when many of us enjoy being close to friends and loved ones. But getting into the holiday spirit is about much more than gatherings and presents, it’s also a time to lend a hand to those in need.

Giving back during the holidays is an easy way to spread meaningful cheer and goodwill in your community or for a cause you’re passionate about. These are a few ways to do just that when December rolls around:

Volunteer Your Time

Lending your time and providing virtual or in-person help can allow you to make a deeper, more personal connection to the causes you support. Consider one of the following volunteer ideas:

  • Volunteer at a food pantry or kitchen
  • Pick up a shift at an animal shelter
  • Tutor a student that can’t afford to pay for private tutoring

Donate Essential Items

When donating items, be sure they are either unused or in good enough condition to be used. Most charities accepting goods are unable to distribute clothes or other items that are ripped, torn, or badly damaged. Here are some items that are commonly donated:

  • Unused toothbrushes and other toiletries
  • Clothes that are in good condition
  • Books for children and adults

Give to a Charity

If you can donate your extra cash on hand or even assets in your investment portfolio, it can make a huge difference. Here are a few types of charities whose missions are especially critical during the holidays:

  • Mental health service providers
  • Homelessness relief programs
  • Food banks and pantries

Set Your Calendar: Donate Before December 31!

Making a generous donation at the end of the year isn’t just impactful for charitable organizations, it can also ensure that you maximize the potential tax benefits you can receive from your charitable giving.

Plus, the year-end season is when most nonprofits are fundraising for the next calendar year, and many offer matching donation offers to incentivize support from individual donors. 

If you’re in the giving spirit, you can donate with stocks, crypto or credit cards, or even start a fundraiser to support thousands of charities through The Giving Block
