We’re committed to making a positive impact on the community that has made Thrive Events so successful. Supporting charitable organizations doesn’t have to be a costly endeavor, either. Donation drives are cost-efficient methods for helping people in need, and they also serve a range of other useful purposes. Along with bringing team members together in the spirit of giving, here are a few other benefits of holding a donation drive:
• Helps the Environment: This might not be the first thing you think of when you bring in a gently used toy or winter coat for a donation. However, lending these types of items to a good cause is the best way to prevent them from ending up in a landfill somewhere.
• Gets You Organized: There’s nothing quite like going through your possessions to see what can be donated to get your life a bit more organized. You can take advantage of this benefit whether your company organizes a drive or if you just collect items to take to a local nonprofit on your own.
• Helps Victims of Disasters: This is even more important in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Our Thrive Events commitment to giving back gets even stronger during times like these, and every small donation helps.
These are a few of the positive outcomes you can achieve through donating items to charitable organizations.
