Across the country, school has been closed, most churches have stopped meeting, non-esential businesses have closed, and many essential businesses, like Chiropractic Family Wellness Center in Scarborough, Maine, have limited their hours. Although everyone wants to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, most of us are not used to sheltering in our homes (many of which have now become offices, playgrounds, classrooms, and daycare centers). This can lead to a lot of stress.
For some people, they are utterly alone in their homes. Fear and loneliness can spiral in these difficult times, but reaching out with generosity brings in the light we all need.
Americans from one side of the country to the other are finding creative ways to generously share their time, money, and talents while following social distancing guidelines. Neighbors are contacting neighbors, especially those who might have a hard time getting groceries and medical supplies and arranging to drop off meals and other essentials to people in need. Sidewalk chalk artists and children are writing encouraging messages on driveways and sidewalks to help those walking by feel cheered. Others are making online donations to local charities that have been profoundly affected by the crisis.
If you’re not sure where or how to start giving back, the things you are thankful for (and maybe have been writing down in your gratitude journal) can be perfect inspiration for how and where you can start giving back to help your community:
