Spring is right around the corner, which means spring cleaning is as well. It’s a time to not only to clean out closets and changeover clothing, but a time to get rid of many old or unwanted items from your house. Whether you have a small amount of tidying up to do, or a significant amount that you want to do, it’s a great opportunity to help others while helping yourself.
While Spring Cleaning You Can Help Your Community
Helping people in your community isn’t just something that happens during the winter holidays in November and December. Any time is a great time to think about giving back to others in your community. Whether you choose to volunteer your time, donate toys or clothing for kids or spend time at a nursing home with residents who don’t get many visitors, there are so many ways to give. It’s important to remember that you can give whether you have time or money, but what’s key is that you find a cause that’s important to you.
Another key piece of giving is to get kids involved in giving. It’s important to help kids understand that there are people who are less fortunate that need help. You can ask them to go through their own older toys or clothes that may no longer fit them. Or perhaps there is a food shelf in your area that allows kids to volunteer where you can volunteer with them.
If the cause closest to your heart is helping children, there are countless ways to do that. One way is right in your garage when you donate your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes & Wellness, which benefits children in Maryland or the Washington, D.C. area. Wheels For Wishes & Wellness is Car Donation Foundation’s car donation program. Car Donation Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to benefit reputable charities’ programs. Since 2010, Car Donation Foundation has donated more than $30 million to reputable charities. If you have a car to donate, your generosity can help local children’s hospitals to help bring joy to a child’s life.
What Kinds Of Vehicles Can Be Donated?
Wheels For Wishes & Wellness accepts most kinds of vehicles, regardless of make or model, age or condition. Your vehicle doesn’t even have to run!
