As Thanksgiving marks the unofficial start of the holiday season, many of us will likely be rushing from store to store to pick out the perfect presents for our loved ones. But the holiday can also be a way to give thanks for what we have by giving back to those we may never have met. Right near your Dalian on the Park apartment are loads of opportunities to donate your time, skills or even just money to help brighten the holidays for fellow Philadelphians in need.
One organization worthy of your attention is Project HOME, one of the region’s largest and most active homelessness-advocacy organizations. Through a wide range of programs, Project HOME aims to address the underlying issues fueling the city’s homelessness epidemic to help local families break the cycle and begin thriving. To do so, the organization offers supportive housing for those in need, skills-building programs for both youth and adults, recovery services and much more. And much of its work is volunteer-driven—which is where you come in!
Located just six blocks from your Dalian on the Park apartment, Project HOME offers a number of volunteer opportunities for those looking to give back. For instance, you can stop by its kitchen to help cook and serve a meal to clients. You can put your math or science talent to the test by tutoring local youth struggling with academic success. Or you can take part in any number of large, community-wide service events, such as advocating for public policy change, conducting outreach with homeless populations or participating in a local clean-up project.
If you’re looking for a way to show your thanks for all that you have this Thanksgiving, consider paying it forward by giving your time to an organization that is always extending a helping hand to those most in need.
