Back in 2008, I started an outreach program with a Detroit elementary school. Over the past nine years, we have worked with several classrooms. We have hosted several collection drives, held field trips, scheduled monthly tutoring sessions, and hold an annual toy delivery with Santa.

Giving back to the community doesn’t necessarily mean reaching into your pocket. It can be as simple as spending a few hours volunteering in the community. From an early age, I was taught that it is important to think of others, especially those facing difficult times. There are several opportunities to give back locally, and finding one to fit your background and interest is rather easy. Look up your favorite non-profit website or search the Volunteer Match website. If you’re pressed for time, a few of my favorites are listed on this blog. Plus, one that I just learned about is being hosted by the Walsh Alumni Association on August 28 and September 25. It has a really cool grassroots effort on social media.
