“The Importance of Giving Back to Your Community”
The holiday season is approaching. Here’s an important life lesson for us to all consider, no matter how tough you think your life is, there’s always someone who is facing challenges that are even tougher than yours. We have people all around us that struggle with basic life necessities like making money, providing meals to their family, or simply having a place to rest at night. Even though this should be considered year-round, there is no better time to start than now.
Giving back is where you give, and don’t expect anything back. No benefits for you, no recognition, nothing tangible gets sent your way. Your biggest and sole reward is the realization that you’ve made a significant change in someone’s life. And if not “significant” then a positive change, nevertheless. This blog is not intended to brag, but to inspire others to take action and pay it forward this holiday season. Feelings of compassion, humanity and a sense of appreciation are awakened when we give back to people. There is nothing greater to center our focus in this world than beginning to understand just how much we have to be grateful for. So, join us in paying it forward and helping your local community. At Weld Wire and DuraMax, it is one of our missions to leave this world better than we found it.
*For those local to our office, we are hosting a Food Drive that will benefit the Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard and the Patrician Society.
