Gift of Time Could be Best Gift of All This Holiday Season
For many, the holiday season is a time for celebration and fun with loved ones. But for othersin The Dalles and Pacific Northwest, the season can be one of the loneliest times of the year.
At Oregon Trail Insurance, we know how precious the gift of time can mean to someone in The Dalles during the holidays. Here are a few ways you and your family can share the spirit of the holidays with others.
- Share a holiday dinner with local heroes. Many firefighters, medical specialists and law enforcement professionals spend their holidays on the job in The Dalles. Bring a holiday dinner or treats to your local hospital, fire station or police station, and share the gift of thanks with local heroes who protect and serve our community every day.
- Offer comfort to those in need. Connect with local organizations in Oregon that help to feed the hungry or provide warmth and shelter for those out in the cold. If you’re not sure where to start, spend just a little time researching the websites of our local volunteer organizations. Find out how and when you can help – and make it a family affair.
- Make some new friends at our local retirement homes. While many of our senior citizens are included in holiday celebrations with family and friends, some spend the season without anyone. Call your local retirement home and check into the volunteer opportunities they offer for helping with crafts, special events, playing cards or just spending time visiting.
At Oregon Trail Insurance, we know that giving the gift of time is sometimes the best gift of all. We hope you find time to share your time this holiday season – you’ll be glad you did!
