How to brighten the holidays for others

Are you looking for ways to make the holidays brighter for others? The Hanover County Department of Community Resources has a list of organizations seeking holiday assistance for those they serve. 

“In person” volunteering needs may be limited, but this year’s “wish list” is still full of opportunities to show compassion and bring joy to others. 

The “Making Holidays Bright” holiday wish list provides individuals, businesses and community groups with opportunities and contact information of local agencies that are in need of community support as they serve others during the Holiday season. The document is available online here 

The list includes ways in which you can:

  • Make a monetary donation
  • Share your time
  • Collect or contribute items in need
  • Shop for a specific child, family or elder 
  • Create an item or a gift

The list also includes information on community Thanksgiving dinner “Pick Up” offerings and the Hanover Christmas Mother.

Finally, don’t forget that with the new year, we will again be accepting nominations for Hanover’s Spirit of Volunteerism Awards. Start creating your own “wish list” of “unsung heroes” who volunteer their time throughout the year to make a positive impact.  Nomination details will be available January 2022. 

For more information, please call the Department of Community Resources at 365-4300 or e-mail [email protected]
