The gift of time could be the best gift of all this holiday season
For many, the holiday season is a time for celebration and fun with loved ones. But for others in Illinois and Wisconsin, the season can be one of the loneliest times of the year.
At R Hobbs Insurance Agency, we know how precious the gift of time can mean to someone who is alone 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. 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 Illinois 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 like Volunteers of America - Illinois or United Way of Illinois. 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.
We hope you find time to share your time this holiday season - you’ll be glad you did!
Don't forget our furry friends! We got Roy Hobbs from an animal shelter in Deerfield, and he was such a great dog we named our agency after him! Shelters can always use volunteers and supplies. Check with your local animal hospital or animal shelter for the items they need the most.
