Residents of Fort Payne, AL can give back to their communities in many ways. There are others out there suffering, both human beings and furry friends, who are unable to help themselves. You’ll not only bring something special to them when you give back to your community, but you’ll also receive a sense of pride and accomplishment for your good deed.
1. The Animal Shelter
Not everyone in need walks on two legs. There are plenty of homeless, and sometimes injured or sick, pets who need loving. Adopt or foster an animal. You’re giving that precious pup or cute cat a second chance. If you’re not willing to take care of a pet, make a charitable donation of money or items to the rescue center.
2. Volunteer at a Nursing Home
The staff at a nursing home is oftentimes too busy caring for the patients to be able to actually spend quality time with them. Volunteer at the nursing home to play games, sing or do an activity with them. Just coming in to talk with the patients is enough. They appreciate it greatly.
3. Provide Food
Donate to a family who is unable to afford the necessities. Food banks are always looking for donations of non-perishable items and take items like shampoo, toothpaste and other toiletries as well. Churches and food banks take donations of this nature. You can use the Family-to-family.org site to find a family to help.
4. Volunteer for the National Coalition for the Homeless
The National Coalition for the Homeless and other similar organizations are always in need of volunteers to help with the construction of homes for those who do not have one. They also do job training programs and need volunteers to assist in shelters.
