Are you looking for a way to say “thanks” to those who serve you, your family and your community? Here are four actions you can take to get started.
Service workers often have hectic schedules that leave little time for tackling personal errands. Offer to take on some chores for them, such as walking the dog, doing yard work or picking up groceries.
Provide meals to teachers
Supply meals and treats for teachers to nourish and brighten up their days. Especially during long days like testing and conferences, organizing meals gives them the chance to take a break and relax. Consider adding a gift card they can use personally or to purchase something for the classroom.
Make care packages
Put together care packages for employees at your favorite local businesses, emergency responders or teachers. Create special gifts with practical items like hand sanitizer, lotion or gift cards, and fun items like snacks and self-care products.
Send supportive cards
Send encouraging cards to let the people who serve your community know how much they mean to you. The whole family can get involved and be creative making cards together.
