How to Become More Involved in Your Community – By Emma Grace Brown- guest blogger

Strong communities are essential to the well-being of their members. They provide opportunities for social connection and create a sense of belonging among neighbors while also ensuring residents can live safe, fulfilling lives. 

But for a community to be strong, it requires everyone to step up and get involved. Becoming more active in your neighborhood will prove to be good for you, but it will be especially beneficial for those around you. And it’s not all that difficult to start making an impact. Below, Mary the Medicine Woman lists some simple ways to connect with your community on a deeper level and help others lead better lives!

Connect With Community Members

Let’s start with practical ways to develop relationships with your neighbors: 

  • Make a point to be more accessible to people you see around town. 
  • Start organizing community events like car washes, yard sales, and block parties. 
  • Run for your neighborhood school board or council to influence local policy

Donate Your Resources

You might be surprised by how many local opportunities there are for you to give your money, time, and things!

  • If any local organizations share your values, consider donating monthly to their operations. 
  • Also, consider volunteering your time and energy at a charity in your community (e.g., homeless shelter, food pantry, library, etc.). 
  • And give your unwanted household items to thrift shops, food banks, and other establishments that serve community members. 

Go Global

Why limit your contributions to your city or region? Here are a few things you can do to support global initiatives:

  • Provide financial support to individuals and organizations in Brazil by using services like Remitly. 
  • Find reputable charities in Brazil to which you can donate your time and energy. 
  • Promote causes you believe in on social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. 

We all want to live in safe, enriching communities. But that kind of environment requires each of us to do our part. If you’re ready to step up and make a difference, consider the tips above. In no time, you’ll be helping others and improving your own life in the process!
