It is officially August, which means two things—summer is coming to an end and fall is just around the corner, and it is officially back-to-school time. This means searching out backpacks, pencils, binders, notebooks, the whole shabang.
Back-to-school season might look a little different this year, but it can still be exciting! It might also be challenging and—with kids—frustrating. You can take advantage of this time to grow and live a positive lifestyle by getting involved in local schools’ philanthropy. Join in and give back to the community during back-to-school season!
Send a note or small gift to a teacher in your life.
The teachers you know have been gearing up for this school year all summer. Many of them finished out their school years remote teaching from their houses, and they’re most likely a little anxious about what going back to school entails in 2020. Let them know you’re thinking about them by sending them a little note to let them know you care, or even a gift card to their favorite coffee place.
Teach your children about philanthropy.
If you work with or have kids, take time this back-to-school season to teach them the importance of philanthropy. Lead by example in charity work, and your children will follow the same values. You have the opportunity to instill good morals in our future generation of philanthropists.
This back-to-school season, do more than simply prepare for a new school year—help those in need. You can take advantage of philanthropic opportunities and better the schools in your community. Donations to support Westminster Public School students and schools can be made here: Supporting WPS kids!
