Can Collection Cottages

Year Round

The community is responding well to our "We Can" aluminum beverage can collection drive and we are very grateful! The can collection cottages are filling up more rapidly which means they have to be emptied more often. If you can spare a couple of hours a month to give us a hand please contact Karin at KGarner@thegivinggarden.org.

Year Round

Volunteers are needed year round to help plant and maintain the garden. Please contact Kgarner@thegivinggarden.org for details.

COVID-19

It is important to stay healthy all the time but even more important now during the pandemic. Please exercise social distancing and stay at home to help flatten the curve. If we work together we can beat this!

 

A Word About Volunteering

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.

Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.
