August 22nd is National Be An Angel Day! It’s a time that encourages spreading kindness and good deeds. To celebrate, we’ve listed a few amazing ways to give back to your community. Giving back is beneficial in many ways. It impacts those around you, sparks hope, and spreads love. Even the smallest act of kindness can make the biggest impact!
Donating is a great way to show support for a local cause you care about. It helps an organization’s efforts and ensures that they reach their goals in helping others. It also impacts the people in your community directly. When you are in a position to give back to those in need, donating is a powerful way to show gratitude for your own blessings. Whether it’s a one-time gift or a monthly donation, any amount truly helps.
There are two ways to donate to the Dream Center. You can make a direct donation or donate goods to sustain our efforts. Because of your help, we are able to serve up to 40,000 people a month in Los Angeles.
Support a Local Business
Local businesses are often operated by your close neighbors. Having the support of the community truly means a lot to a local owner and makes the ultimate difference for their business. By showing support for them, you are ultimately giving back to your own home and strengthening your community.
Be Kind To Someone
Use your words and actions to spread some love and positivity. Kindness is a gift that keeps on giving. Making others feel good, in return, makes you feel good! Buy your co-worker a cup of coffee. Call a loved one. We never know what someone else is enduring. Even a simple smile can turn someone’s day around. Your kindness alone has the power to give back to those around you, and bring out the best in yourself and others.
When you care about a specific cause or organization, fundraising is a great way to leave an impact. It encourages people in your community to come together and work toward a common goal. It provides a strong sense of belonging for everyone and encourages connection between them. It’s the perfect way for a community to grow and flourish together.
The Dream Center aims to meet the immediate needs of our community and fundraising is a key way to further our mission.
Offer a Helping Hand
Volunteering is another effective way to give back to your community. The Dream Center partners up with volunteers to do outreach in local neighborhoods with the goal of finding a need and filling it. Our outreach programs include distributing food, hygiene items and other essentials. It’s a helpful way to reach your community directly and make a lasting difference in someone’s life.
No matter what your good deed is, there are many ways you can give back to your community. Of course, you don’t need a special day to do so. The truth is, these acts of kindness are available throughout the year. Every single day we are all granted the ability to spread some love and kindness wherever we go. The Dream Center knows that there is power in giving back to others and we offer many ways to get involved and share this kindness. We believe that acts of love can really make a difference.
