Start a new tradition this year and take some time out of your life to help others. Check out these six easy ways you can make this your most memorable holiday season yet!
Support Your Local Food Bank
The holidays are a great time to donate food to your local food bank, as they rely heavily on donations from the community. Here are 10 items food banks really need.
Volunteer at a Homeless Shelter
This month my daughter and I had the privilege of volunteering at our county’s homeless shelter. She truly loved the experience, and when it was time to leave, she didn’t want to go. Since going, I’ve decided to sign up to serve an evening meal with another family!
Make a Care Package for Troops
Put together a care package for our hard-working, much-deserving troops. Here is a printable list with items that our troops can use. You’ll also find places to donate your care package.
Give a Toy
Many local charities accept toys for kids during the holidays. Find one in your area and pick out a toy for a child in need. Kids love getting toys at Christmas, but many are not able to get what they want from Santa Claus. Make a child’s dream come true and get them a great gift!
Get a Shot. Give a Shot.®
One very easy thing you can do this holiday season is visit your local Walgreens and get your flu shot. How will that help others, you say?
Well, The United Nations Foundation and Walgreens are partnering for the third year in a row with the Get a Shot. Give a Shot® campaign. For each immunization administered, Walgreens helps to provide immunizations to a child in a developing country.* To date, Walgreens has helped provide 7 million lifesaving vaccines!
So if you haven’t had your flu shot yet, head to your local Walgreens! If you already have be sure to share this with friends and family who are looking to do something extra special for the holidays.
Be healthy for the holidays – get your flu shot at Walgreens! There is a $0 copay with most insurance and walk-ins are welcome. For more information, go to Walgreens.com/GetaShot.
* From July 1, 2015 to August 31, 2016, for every immunization administered, Walgreens will donate $0.18 to the United Nations Foundation, up to a maximum donation of $2,000,000. For more information, go to Walgreens.com/GetaShot.
Vaccines subject to availability. State, age and health-related restrictions may apply.
