This weekend, a special day is coming up focused on giving back to the community through volunteer work and charitable contributions. Make a Difference Day was created as a national event to promote volunteer work and community assistance.
Our blog post this week highlights some local San Diego Make a Difference Day events where you can get involved as well as provides information on our own efforts to be involved in the local San Diego community and help raise money for San Diego organizations.
Make a Difference Day Events in San Diego
Throughout San Diego, there are formal events for Make a Difference Day that you can participate in:
- Food Sorting at Feed America San Diego: This is a way to give back by volunteering with an organization that feeds the local San Diego homeless and hungry. Click on the above link to learn more about this event.
- Volunteering: This link provides information on a wide array of ways you can volunteer within San Diego County to help those in need.
Besides these events, you can be proactive and start something within your own part of the San Diego community by helping out neighbors, organizing a clean-up day, or providing some type of assistance on the local level that benefits a San Diego non-profit, church, school or community center.
The Helping Hands Program Raises Money for the Local San Diego Community
Another way you can help during Make a Difference Day as well as throughout the year is to participate in our Helping Hands Program, which donates part of your purchase to the San Diego organization of your choice. All purchases can qualify for this charitable giving program for non-profit organizations, schools, and churches.
Currently, enrolled San Diego organizations include Solana Highlands Elementary School, Valhalla Foundation Center, Del Mar Sharks Soccer Club, Susan G. Komen For the Cure, Congregation Beth Israel and Spina Bifida. More organizations can enroll through the online page so that they can also receive support from us and our customers as part of the ongoing efforts to strengthen and improve the San Diego community.
Our objective is to continually give back to the San Diego community and its residents who have given us so much over the many decades that we have been operating flower shops throughout San Diego.
