7 Ways to Give Back to Your Community During the Holidays

1. Give fun

The Salvation Army collects gifts for kids in need. Donor Welcome Centres can often be found at The Salvation Army Thrift Stores located at 840 Albert st and 1711 Dewdney Ave E.

3. Yes you can

Clear your cabinets of canned food and other non-perishable items – or fill a shopping cart at the store with items to donate – and drop them off at the Regina Food Bank.

4. Schmooze with seniors

Volunteer at a local senior center and spend time with an older person who might be feeling especially lonely around the holidays.

5. Go for wags and wiggles

Local animal shelters always need an extra hand, whether it’s for walking dogs, socializing cats, critical daily chore, or volunteering for an adoption event!

6. Swing a hammer

Santa’s not the only one on the rooftops this time of year. The national non-profit Habitat for Humanity always has projects going. See where you can help in your neighborhood at https://habitatregina.ca/.

7. Help the homeless
