Giving Back this Holiday Season

Giving Back this Holiday Season

 

It’s important to remember that the Holiday season is about so much more than shopping for gifts and sipping on peppermint mochas. This time of year, the team at 171 Nissan likes to make an effort to remember those less fortunate who don’t have the same luxuries as us. During the Holiday season, it’s more important than ever to give back to children, veterans, and others who may be in need. Here are some ideas on giving back this Holiday.

Donate to a Cause

There are tons of reputable charities all over the country who can use your funds for a good cause. One option near 171 Nissan is CASA of West Central Louisiana. Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children are a group of community volunteers who work to find safe, loving, permanent solutions to children who are victims of abuse and neglect. Your donation this time of year could help a child have a special, memorable Holiday season.

Volunteer

If you don’t have money to give, you may instead have time, and volunteering can be just as meaningful and helpful to those in need. Local food pantries, such as God’s Food Box in DeRidder, Louisiana, are always looking for people to help serve those in need, especially during this time of year.
