Hello Stags! Welcome back to the FUSA Blog. We hope you are having a great start to your finals week and you are finishing out the semester strong. As the holidays are here and approaching, we want to show you ways that you can give back this holiday season.
It is important to remember that the holiday season is more than gifts and spending time with family and friends. It is also about being able to give back to others who may be in need. There are a bunch of easy ways to give to others, especially in your hometown communities or in the Fairfield community.
Here are some COVID-19 friendly ways to give back this season!
Pay for someone’s Dunkin’ or Starbucks
Next time you find yourself at the Dunkin’ or Starbucks drive-thru picking up a coffee, anonymously buy a stranger’s coffee for them! This is bound to make anyone’s day.
Donate to your favorite organization
Take that extra money you made at your job or collected from gifts from relatives and donate to your favorite organization. This is an easy way to give back to a cause that means a lot to you
Find a local gift registry or program
Many towns have local gift registries for individuals in their community in their need. Many high schools also have community service events throughout the holiday season, so check out to see if you can donate or gift something to a family in your town or a student that attends a local K-12 school.
Run a race for a good cause
Many charities are doing virtual races this year to accommodate for the pandemic! Don’t be afraid to step out into the chilly weather to help someone in need out this season.
Make a blanket for a child in need
Project Linus collects homemade blankets and donates them to ill children across the United States. This is a great way to get crafty and give to children who may need something to look forward to this holiday season.
Give back and open your heart to those in need or to random strangers! This is a great way to show what it truly means to be a Stag. Display random acts of kindness and try to give in anyway that you can.
Happy holidays, Stags!
