Tick Tock Two Simple Ways to Give Back to Your Community When You’re Short on Time

Charities for military families

What is the best way to show my support for military families? What kinds of charitable donations for non profit organizations are best? Where can I donate clothes?

Like many Americans who want to take an active role in their community and give to those in need, these may be just a few of the questions going through your mind. With today’s busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to find time to volunteer or donate. Fortunately, there are a number of organizations for both military and civilian families that make donating and giving back to the community easier than ever before.

Here are two examples of how you can still make a difference in your community, even if you’re short on time.

Clean out your closet

With spring just around the corner, you’re likely to be doing a little spring cleaning anyway, making now the perfect time for clothing donations. It’s hard to believe that on average, Americans discard roughly 68 pounds of clothing each year, of which nearly 99% could have been recycled.

Not only does donating clothes free up much needed closet space and help those in need, it also helps the environment by reducing the amount of textile waste and pollution that ends up in landfills. If you’re asking yourself, “But where can I donate clothes?”, contact your local charity to schedule a donation pick up from your home or work.

The gift of life

While donations of all forms are readily accepted, needed, and appreciated, blood donations are perhaps one of the most important donations you could make. Did you know that a single pint of blood can save up to three lives? With just a half hour of your time, you can save the lives of three other people. Short on time? No problem. There are several mobile blood banks that allow you to donate on the go.
