Q: Denise, I was on your call last week when you suggested that we do a community service client event. I love this idea because I always felt that traditional client appreciation events were too much about me, as I am on the shy side. This feels right to me! What are some other kinds of activity-based community service events?
A: I am so glad to hear you are thinking about this option! The first thing I would do is think about your interests. Do you like nature? Consider working on a local trail or park with your local Parks and Recreation department. Are you passionate about housing in your community? Get a group involved in a Habitat for Humanity build. What if you are interested in helping animals? You might consider contacting your local Humane Society and learning about service projects that you can take on or participate in. Maybe you were a Boy Scout or Girl Scout? Contact your local Troop and learn how you and a group of people can help.
There are so many opportunities to lend a helping hand in your community and I would be thrilled if you got back in touch with me if you take something on!
