31 Days of Giving is a community service campaign Elder Law of Michigan started last year. Our goal is to provide 31 days of consecutive service work to our community. Last year, our staff provided 23 days of service and were able to assist many different organizations and give back to our community. The campaign also built stronger ties with community partners and senior services. We were able to learn more about the available services and programs that could better the lives of our clients, while also sharing the numerous programs Elder Law of Michigan has to offer the community.
We recently began our second annual 31 Days of Giving Campaign, and it’s off to a successful start! Our staff have volunteered or will volunteered at several local organizations including: Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, Loaves and Fishes, RSVP, Meridian Township, Backpacks for Kids, Gleaners Food Bank, and more!
We began this holiday initiative in order to show that there are many ways to “give.” During the holidays all organizations are looking for donations, but volunteering your time is just as valuable and often more rewarding. Consider volunteering this holiday season! It’s a gift that keeps giving!
If your organization could use a volunteer this holiday season, please contact Audra Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
