While the holidays may look a little different this year, there are still ways you can get into the spirit through charity work. Here are some ideas on how you can give back during COVID.
There are several organizations that see a higher need for donations during the holiday season and they can often maximize this money. For example, the Utah Food Bank can turn a $1 donation into $8.03 worth of goods and services.
Providing blood during this time doesn’t only help those who need it for sometimes life saving measures, but it also provides additional resources to our hospitals, doctors, and first responders. If you’ve recovered from COVID, your blood may be helpful to those who are sick or for other research.
Holding a food drive for your business, neighborhood, or school is a great way to help out the community and still maintaining social distancing measures. Set up a no-contact drop-off location and coordinate someone to take the food to the proper donation location.
Every year, Cyprus Credit Union sponsors the annual Angel Tree event. There are so many ways to donate including adopting an angel, buying meals for those in need, and donating money for additional resources. If you would like to participate, stop by any of branches to adopt an angel. All unwrapped gifts must be returned to the branch from which they were adopted by Friday, December 11th.
