Four Ways to Fill Up on Social Good This Thanksgiving

By November 22, 2016 No Comments

Thanksgiving is only a few days away which means most volunteer opportunities are already booked. Itching to give back but not sure how? Don’t fret! Whether it’s wearing an extra layer of clothing to donate during Atlanta Track Club’s 5k or serving the homeless community during the Safehouse Chili Outreach, there are still several ways to fill up on social good this Thanksgiving.

Thank & Thryve
Now – Thursday, November 24

Are you a young professional looking for an easy way to give back without leaving the comfort of your couch? You’re in luck. Become a Thryver ‘Career Insider’ by sharing your story and helping college students and recent grads find their own successful career path. For every profile created, Thryver will donate $5 to feed the hungry this holiday season. Win-win if you ask us.

Thanksgiving Day Half Marathon & 5K + Clothing Drive with Atlanta Mission
Thursday, November 24 at 7:30am

The half marathon may be sold out but tickets are still available to Atlanta Track Club’s Thanksgiving Day 5k. Burn a few cals before you head face first into your Thanksgiving feast and make sure you wear a few extra layers to shed in donation to Atlanta Mission.

Safehouse Chili Cookoff
Saturday, November 26 from 9:30am to 3:00pm

If you had your heart set on volunteering, the Safehouse Chili Outreach is still looking for volunteers. It’s $10 to attend but registration goes toward covering the cost of hosting hundreds who come together to share a meal, enjoy music, have good conversations, and provide resources for people affected by homelessness.

Safehouse is still especially in search of barbers. If you or someone you know can lower a few ears, your services are especially needed.

Cycling for Good XVIII
Sunday, November 27 at 12:00pm

Love riding your bike and giving back? Cycling for Good offers the best of both worlds. Meet the crew this Sunday at Loose Nut Cycles and head out for a spin around town while delivering fresh fruit, healthy snacks, personal care items, and more to Atlanta’s homeless community.
