Season of Giving


Have you been out searching for the perfect gift for family and friends? I'll be honest, I haven't begun shopping yet or given it much thought but I'm excited to look local this weekend! As the holiday season gears up, I am also reminded of the many opportunities we have to give back to our community. Whether to individuals, organizations or groups, there are many ways to contribute during this season of giving.  


If you're not sure where to start, here are just a few ideas: 

  • Donate to any nonprofit organization. NPO's are doing great work in and around our community, and need our support! 
  • Give non-perishable food and toiletry items to MICA's pantry. 
  • Cheer up our furry friends at PALS by donating supplies, money or your time. 
  • Give a book or a blanket (or both!) to the 3rd Annual Covered Kids Books & Blankets Drive.
  • Donate a coat, hats and gloves for the cold weather season. Items can be given to MICA or Second Mile. 
  • Give a new, unwrapped toy to Grinnell Realty's Toy Drive! 

However you choose to spend your time and dollars this holiday season, thank you for considering the ways we can work together to support our fellow Grinnellians and continue to make this a wonderful community by helping our groups and organizations doing such important work.
