John Jezzini on Charity Projects for Your Workplace
Do you want to do something good for your community but don’t have time to volunteer? Why not try a charity project at work? Many businesses are getting involved in charity projects, and it is a great way to get team building and networking is done at the same time! This blog post will discuss some of the best charity projects that your workplace can get involved in.
Volunteer Somewhere Local
Do you want to help out the community but don’t know where? Why not visit your town’s website and find out what volunteer opportunities are available near you. Volunteering is an excellent way to do good for the community and bring excitement into your life. Many places can use your help, from libraries and schools to animal shelters. Depending on the season, you could also help with spring cleaning or Halloween events.
Host a Charity Coffee Morning
A great way to do some good is by hosting a charity coffee morning at work! It’s not tricky, and it can be done for almost any cause. You can ask employees to bring in baked goods for the morning, and you can set up a table with coffee and tea. Of course, you will still need to provide some drinks and snacks, but it is not as expensive as many people think. Hold the event at break time (or after hours) and use this as an opportunity to network with colleagues while helping those in need!
Assemble Care Packages for the Homeless
Christmas is almost upon us, and many homeless people struggle during this season. Assemble some care packages with hot chocolate, food, clothing, and essential toiletries for those struggling to get through winter! This particular project can be done at any time of year, but it is best to do it in winter. Someone will be extremely grateful, and it can be great for morale!
Plant Some Trees
Planting some trees is good for the environment and a charitable project at work. It also helps to bring some greenery into your office to have something nice to look at while they are working. You could plant an area of trees outside of your workplace, or you could supply a local school with some saplings. Some companies will give out free saplings if you pay for the delivery, so why not put in a request?
