Ways for Teens to Give Back This Holiday Season 2022

Ways for Teens to Give Back This Holiday Season 2022

It's giving season! As we remember those in need this holiday season (and there is especially a lot of need this year!), we wanted to create a master list of service ideas for your teens and your family. 

Let us know in the comments if you have other ideas! 

1. Volunteer at a food bank - https://www.feedingamerica.org/take-action/volunteer/holidays

2. Host a basic goods drive of some kind at your school or in your neighborhood -  This can be a sock drive, canned goods, toiletries. 

3. Throw a care package party - Similar to #2, but have friends over to pack care packages for those experiencing homelessness.

4. Share what you have - Donate gently used items to a shelter near you. In addition to clothes, donate blankets to shelters (homeless or animal) or unused school supplies to schools in need.

5. Purchasing toys for kids in needs - https://www.toysfortots.org/donate/Default.aspx

6. Help your local pet shelter - They might need food donated, help with dog walks, etc.

7. Take presents to seasonal workers - Those who work in hospitals, emergency services, transportation, etc. need to work during the holidays. Bring them a fun surprise like some wrapped cookies.

8. Host a winter coat drive

10. Show some love to residents at a local nursing home - Make holiday cards, visit residents, paint ladies' nails (if allowed) or even gather a group to sing carols. 

11. Cool a big meal and deliver to a family in need

12. Fill a backpack for a foster child in need - Search for local foster care organizations or support our Bleuet Girl partner Hailey's Haven

13. Help build a house for someone in need - https://www.habitat.org/

14. Pack a shoebox for a child in need like Operation Christmas Child.

15. Help an elderly or ill neighbor - Bring food over or offer to run errands for them.

16. Make cards for those suffering from cancer - Join our Bleuet Entrepreneur Inaya Premji in making handmade cards for those with cancer through Send A Smile

17. Pay someone's layaway or organize a fundraiser on Facebook to raise funds to help pay a family's layaway expenses - https://www.payaway.org/

18. Purchase a Bleuet Giving Gift from our group of teen entrepreneurs who are  helping those in need
