This year, why not spread the holiday cheer with others in need? Volunteering for the holidays is a great way to give back to the community. Whether you want to volunteer yourself or as a family, opportunities abound on Maui.
Why Volunteering for the Holidays is a good Idea
According to a recent study from the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania, people who volunteer feel more competent and efficient at the end of the day. In other words, by giving your time to others, you’ll actually feel like you have more time. Not a bad feeling to have during the busy holiday season!
Holiday Volunteering Opportunities on Maui
There are dozens of great volunteer opportunities on Maui. Take a look at some below, and sign up to learn more:
- Get into the holiday spirit this year by attending Na Hoaloha’s holiday open house and cookie exchange! This is a great opportunity to learn more about this organization and how you can volunteer to help our island’s kupuna.
- If you’re interested in the island’s history, the Sugar Museum is seeking volunteers to help run the museum gift shop.
- You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home to make a difference. Na Hoaloha is in need of telephone reassurance volunteers to make a once or twice weekly phone call to Maui’s homebound. Just a small friendly phone call can help our kupuna feel less isolated.
