How Your Company Can Give back this Holiday Season


It’s been a challenging but good year for your business and it’s time to give back! Charitable giving offers businesses and employees a chance to stop and reflect, and give back to the community that’s fostered you.  What’s more, giving back boosts employee morale, benefits the community and can also benefit your company’s reputation!

Rope in all your employees and get ready to share in the joy this festive season! Here are 6 ways your business can give back this holiday season:

Set up food parcels

Simple but incredibly impactful, food parcels are a great way to think of others this festive season. Set up a collection point where your employees can donate tinned or non-perishable foodstuffs which can be handed out to local homeless shelters, orphanages, refugee centres or more.

Gifts for underprivileged children

‘Tis the season for giving, as they say! Spread a bit of festive cheer by collecting gifts for children in your community that might otherwise not receive anything. A small gift can do wonders for making a child feel special and is always appreciated.

Donate a percentage of your profits

Give a little extra this December by donating a percentage of your profits to a deserving charity or NGO. Even a small percentage can go far and will mean the world to a hard-working charitable organisation.

Volunteer your time

Combine team building and charity through volunteer work! Paint your local library or underprivileged school, visit an old-age home or help out at a soup kitchen. There are so many great opportunities to get involved and create change in your community.

Offer an internship or training opportunity

Extend your goodwill into the new year by offering a sponsored training or internship opportunity to a young person or student who deserves it! By doing so you educate and employ the youth whilst your business benefits from the skills and work of a young person.

Host a stationary drive

The end of the school year is coming up, which means that teachers are starting to think about the start of the next school year in January. For most teachers, they need to purchase stationery and materials from their own pay checks. Help them out by collecting stationery and books. Call your local school to find out what they need and how you can help!
