We are all busy every day and helping out the community is sometimes we forget or don’t consider anymore. But remember that this is an activity that is worth doing during our spare time.

So, let us learn below simple ways on how we can help our community:

Think of some ways where you can volunteer.

  • Volunteering is a simple way yet fulfilling activity that you can do during your free time. Isn’t it that it’s a good activity than just sitting around watching movies that can only make you sad? Depending on your educational background, capability, resources, or passion, you can use it in deciding how you can help the community.
  • You can be a volunteer lecturer on a related topic in your community, you can volunteer in taking care of homeless animals like cats or dogs, you can help in cleaning the environment and making ways to promote proper waste disposal, etc. There are countless ways you can get involved, but make sure to always consider what you know, what you are good at, and what interests you the most.

Help and inspire your neighbors

  • Our neighbors might be going through difficult times without being aware of it. These may be due to physical, emotional, psychological, financial, etc. Taking time to talk with them will help you find ways to help with what they are going through.
  • You can help them by giving advice, teaching them about proper budgeting or home management, giving them tips on how they can manage their stress, or how to cook something healthy for the family, etc.
  • You can have a lot of ways to help them. It’s just a simple effort but could already make a big difference in their well-being.

Cleaning up the backyard or front yard

  • One way to inspire others is for them to see what you are doing. By simply picking up trash, sweeping, and disposing of the garbages properly, you are already showing them a pleasant activity that can help the environment. Becoming a role model is a nice way to motivate people to be mindful also in taking care of the nature and environment.
  • Doing gardening, planting ornamental plants to beautify the surrounding, or planting vegetables for food consumption. You are not just helping the surroundings to make it free from weeds but you are also helping to purify the air.

Donating your stuff or things that you don’t need anymore

  • Giving can greatly impact people who need it the most while decluttering some spaces on your cabinets or shelves. Things that you can donate are clothing, shoes, toys, or even food.

Be a good member of the community

  • You can also help the community by simply showing a good attitude.
  • Don’t throw your garbages anywhere.
  • Take part in your community programs.
  • Be kind to everyone and show a genuine attitude.
  • Be friendly to your neighbors and other people in your community.
  • Help the community achieve peace and order by starting it yourself.
  • Follow the rules and guidelines that are being implemented in your community.

Our involvement as a part of the community where we live is crucial for its development. And being a part of an improved and developed community gives us something that we can be proud of.
