Visit Naperville – Gather and give back


November represents the start of the holiday season for many, and with it brings thoughts of gathering with friends, family, co-workers, or social clubs. This year, ponder adding a different twist… gathering with a mission of giving thanks and giving back to others. Consider volunteering as a group to support your community, not only to help others, but also for the team building and bonding opportunity for your corporate group or family gathering.

Within Naperville there are many volunteer opportunities and organizations dedicated to supporting and improving our community. Local organization Loaves and Fishes provides food, resources, and support for struggling families to help them overcome barriers, improve their lives, and become more self-sufficient. They offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities for adults, kids, and corporate groups. See www.loaves-fishes.org/volunteer for more information.

360 Youth Services is another local organization that provides life-changing services to youths through substance use prevention education, counseling, and housing. They utilize volunteers for a variety of roles and initiatives. Find out more about the organization and ways to get involved here: 360youthservices.org.

KidsMatter provides free programs to promote and advocate for the health and well-being of kids and families. With a wide range of programs and community partnerships, their mission is to help build resilient kids that can effectively manage the stressors of everyday life. For more information and volunteer opportunities, see kidsmatter2us.org.

There are many more options to volunteer, and all provide an excellent way to come together and create a rewarding and fun experience for your co-workers, friends, or family members. To complete the experience, consider adding a great meal to your giving back outing; Naperville has a wide range of restaurants and hotels that can accommodate large and small groups.

Many organizations would love the gift of your group’s time or support in any way that you can give it. Be the kind of group that gives back.
