These are all really great. I also like to help with toiletry supply drives, as toiletries are really hard to come by for those without a permanent residence. Our local high school does one around the holidays for high school kids who are homeless.

Oh, I like that one too. The students at school donate socks for their 4H clubs to help out.

Those are great ways!

Belinda said...

Thank you, Anne.

All good. If we all did a little something - wouldn't it be nice? :)

Belinda said...

Oh yes, that would be wonderful, Cheryl.

I like to make sure personal supplies are part of my donations. I think how hard would it be to be without as a woman. I also try and think of gifts for teens and young adults beyond toys at Christmas. Your list warms my heart .

Belinda said...

That is such a terrific idea, Sam. I’ve read about people who buy $5 McDonalds gift cards to hand out in with a baggie of personal items. I’ve always wanted to do that, but haven’t yet.

I gave supplies to students when I was in schools and around students, teaching or tutoring. Now, I give less school supplies. But, I share food with people who cannot get to the giveaways. I tutored for free, gave people rides. You have a reallly good list.

Love this! Bless your caring heart! Thank you!
Covid has changed many things, but there are still things we can do.
My library has a table in the entrance where people can leave books or magazines.
Donate building supplies to the local Restore.
Donate to Salvation Army or Goodwill.
Sometimes I do random acts of kindness, like leave my quarter in the cart at Aldi. I know it isn't much, but might make someone smile.
Sometimes I like to give an extra large tip. Life is hard, but maybe I can make someone's day a bit better.

Belinda said...

Those are such great ways of giving back, Kathy. Even little things like leaving your quarter in the Aldi cart can make someone’s day brighter. :)

Jackie said...

What wonderful ways to give back Belinda.

God bless.

Not as much scope in my area, but I try.
I collect donated duvets and curtains to remodel into small quilts/cushions for a local cat charity.
I usually give toiletries and sanitary products to local food banks instead of food stuffs.
I collect things for local charity shops.
Not a lot but I do what I can.
