In honor of Veterans Day, we’d like to take a moment to recognize and thank everyone who has and is currently serving in America’s armed forces. We’re beyond grateful for your commitment and sacrifice for our country today and every day!
Here at Olivia’s Organics, giving back to our veterans is important to our entire team. Some of the ways we honor and support our local veterans is by providing fresh salads and produce each month to a local food pantry that serves veterans and their families. Every fall, in partnership with the Kids Clothes Club, Olivia’s donates brand new winter coats to children of veterans. And soon we will be kicking off our annual Toy Drive, which also supports the families of veterans!
This week, we’re sharing a few more ideas for great ways to give back to veterans and causes supporting our men and women in uniform. Read on!
Donate to Hospitals!
Veterans Affairs hospitals are often looking for donations to share with patients, including socks, shirts, toiletries and more. Use this website to find a nearby Veterans Affairs location and check to see if they’re in need of anything specific!
Send Care Packages!
Share a touch of home with someone actively serving by sending a care package and/or a handwritten note expressing your appreciation. Check out this site to coordinate your package, and consider including necessities, snacks, games – and especially a handwritten note!
Partner with family and friends to make giving go further!
With Thanksgiving and the holidays fast approaching, consider using family gatherings as a way to enhance giving. Ask folks coming for Thanksgiving to bring a donation item, or add a donation to a veteran support organization to your holiday wish list!
There you have it! Three great ways to support those in our armed forced this Veterans Day. Do you have any tips or go-to ways to give back? We want to hear about it! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Instagram – that’s @Olivias_Organics.
Thanks for making Olivia’s part of your fresh, healthy life.
