I keep my New Year’s resolutions simple every year: Love more, live more, do more and be more than the previous year. It’s a way to push myself outside my comfort zone, to explore and try new things. And a big component of my goal every year is to give more to others, whether it’s time or money. There are a number of great non-profit organizations near Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments that could use your help.
If you’re looking to get involved with a charitable organization, start here. Great Nonprofits has user reviews of different non-profits, with star ratings for the organizations. Your time is one of the best gifts you can give to a non-profit and VolunteerMatch.org can connect you with volunteer opportunities around the Houston area. From helping the elderly to feeding the homeless, there’s something for everyone who wants to get involved.
A charity near and dear to my heart is the ALS Association of Texas, which helps people living with the disease along with their caregivers and family members. My dad bravely battled this terrible disease and the ALS Association was there for him and us, providing medical care and equipment and emotional support. I proudly take part in the Walk to Defeat ALS every year.
If physical volunteer work is more your thing, a great organization is the Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County. I volunteered with the organization a few years ago, taking part in a Women Build. We constructed a new home for a working mom and her children. It was hard work but a lot of fun. And now I know how to put shingles on a roof.
Spend some of your time this year giving to others and see how much it enriches your own life. Imagine if everyone in the Alexan Auburn Lakes community volunteered just a couple days each month, how much our city would benefit!
