International Youth Day: How to Give Back

Jul 20, 2016

On International Youth Day, remember that there are many ways to make an positive impact on a young life. Here are some of our favorites:

Stuff the Bus

With students heading back to school this month, the need is great for school supplies and food items. Purchase a backpack to help 24,000 area children, veterans and people experiencing homelessness, or learn how to host your own collection drive.

Become a Mentor

“My son is transitioning into college and leaving home,” read a note we received this week. “I have a feeling I’m going to miss being his mentor and parent.”

Become a Volunteer

When you volunteer—whether it’s for an hour, a day, once a week, or once a month—you can create a tremendous impact on another person’s life.
