Giving back to the community has always been a major part of the Catalyst Management culture. We want to help others and make a positive impact on the world around us. As the holiday season approaches, many people start to think about how they can do more to give. Here are a few suggestions for donating to children:
• Toy Donation: Receiving a toy for the holidays when gifts may otherwise not be possible can go a long way to brighten a child’s world. Toys for Tots is the most famous organization that works in this space. Better yet, there are drop-off points available in many public locations.
• Answer Letters to Santa: Many children write letters to Santa every year and send them in the mail. In response to this, the United States Postal Service created Operation Santa. Volunteers get a letter from a child and can purchase a gift based on the child’s request.
• Give a Gift to a Child in the Hospital: Finding opportunities to help children in the hospital has always been a passion of our Catalyst Management team. Many hospitals have programs for this type of donation. It is an opportunity to brighten the day of a child who truly needs it.
There are few things more rewarding than giving to a child during the holiday season.
