The holiday season is closing in on us at high speed, everyone. Christmas shopping has officially commenced, even for procrastinators, and soon the sweet smell of holiday baking will fill many homes. This year, Capital GMC Buick would like to encourage all of you to make a difference in someone’s life this holiday season. What can you do? Well, there are many different charities and food banks that need volunteers and financial assistance this holiday season and there are a number of ways for you to get involved:
- Donate food to the food bank, a family in need, or the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton
- Volunteer at the food bank or a similar foundation
- Help out your local animal shelter, children’s hospital, or retirement home to bring a little holiday cheer to the animals and people there
Unfortunately, not everyone has someone to spend the holidays with. And some families, regrettably, aren’t able to afford it at all. But people can be pretty amazing. Statistics Canada shows that 12.7 million Canadians, aged 15 and over, volunteered through a group or organization in 2013. Hopefully we can make that number grow!
We’re all very excited, and we hope the rest of you will join us in showing our holiday spirit this year. Together, we can make a difference.
