Give a Little, Get a Lot: Volunteering throughout the holidays

Contrary to every TV ad you’ll ever see, the spirit of the season isn’t about purchases, presents and parties. It’s about giving and, specifically, giving back to Atlanta communities and neighborhoods we hold near and dear to our hearts. After all, as The Grinch Who Stole Christmas reminds us, “What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more?”

Holiday Tree Greeting Card Elves Nov. 26 – Dec. 25 (Mon. – Fri. only)
Each holiday season, Trees Atlanta seeks office volunteers (also known as “elves”) to assist with mailing Holiday Tree Greeting Cards. For every holiday tree greeting purchased, Trees Atlanta sends a card to the friend, family member or associate of the purchaser’s choice. Each card tells the loved one that a one-year old tree is being planted in their honor through Trees Atlanta’s NeighborWoods program. As always, volunteers hand-address the envelopes to recipients for a personal touch. Volunteers ages 16+ are welcome to participate. Plan to meet at Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center: 225 Chester Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA 30316. For more information contact joe@treesatlanta.org.

Take a look at the list, find an organization that speaks to you and gather your friends and family to volunteer. The list covers events starting as early as November 1, so there is plenty of time to get involved. Embrace the holiday spirit and enjoy the season of giving! Read more at www.bestselfatlanta.com
