MetLife and U.S. Chamber Small Business Index asked some small business owners about their contribution to their community. Most of these businesses were worried about their economic situation but this didn’t stop them from giving back to their local community.
Also, most of these businesses have a mission statement that includes giving back to their community and they have mentioned they have the following ways to give back:
You can help your community by allowing your employees to volunteer hours with paid volunteer time, you can create teams to participate in events. This will not only build team strength but it will also increase employee satisfaction while benefiting the community.
Get t-shirts, caps and a tablet cloth and visit your community! if you really want to get involve VolunteerMatch is a great website to get matched to a volunteer opportunity in your own community.
