7 Community Gives That Focus on Families

Share Happiness!

Community gives are powerful and get more people involved in the process of giving. Poverty, conflict, illness, loss, homelessness, and hunger are just some of the many complex challenges facing families today – challenges that have all been deeply intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. But you can bring hope and support to families in need by planning gives that focus on families.

Here are 7 gives that will make an impact and ease the burden of families in your community.

Organize A Food Drive With This Community Give

Organize your own community food drive by leaving empty bags on the doorknobs of the homes in your area with a note asking for your neighbours to fill bags with non-perishable food to help ensure that families affected by COVID-19 don’t run out of food during this time of crisis. With so many parents suddenly out of work and struggling to put food on the table, local food banks and food relief programs need community support now more than ever. One bag on one door becomes dinner for a family who might otherwise go without.

Help A Family With Their Gardening

Garden to help a family in your neighbourhood who might use a bit of extra care. Volunteer to rake, mow, weed or plant in a neighbour’s yard or garden. Or find a community garden in your area where you can roll your sleeves up and volunteer your time outdoors to grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs for families in need.

Donate Clothing and Household Items As A Community Give

Donate cozy, new pajamas and a stuffed animal to a child experiencing homelessness. Or organize a clothing or household item drive at your workplace, in your neighbourhood, with your family and friends to make an even bigger impact. Collect clothes, personal hygiene products, school supplies, toys, kitchen products, and other essentials for families struggling with the challenges of poverty and homelessness and give children and their parents hope for a better future.

Help A Family With Internet Access

Provide technology to impoverished students to create equal access to education for all. Fewer low-income students have access to the computers and devices that are crucial for virtual learning, putting them at a significant educational disadvantage. Contact a school in your community to find out more about donating tablets, laptops and school supplies to ensure all families can learn.

Help a Local Refugee Family As A Community

Sponsor a Refugee family by donating grocery gift cards that enable them to purchase grocery staples at a store in their neighbourhood. Refugees are fleeing violence, war and persecution to find better lives for their families – get involved in helping these families, who have already endured so much to feel welcome and secure in their new country.

Create A Birthday Box!

Make a Birthday in a Box for a child living in poverty. Bring together your own family, or other families, adults and children from your neighbourhood, school, office, and community to make hand-made birthday boxes that will enable children and their families to experience the kind of birthday joy that most take for granted, but some never experience.

Share A Meal With Another Family

Get cooking and baking to make the difference for a family in your community who is struggling financially or coping with loss or illness. Better yet, host a virtual cook-along with friends and family where each participant makes their own special dish that will be part of an amazing dinner safely delivered to a family in need.
