Five Volunteer Ideas to Honor Your Loved One This Thanksgiving

Posted by: Erin Ward in Grief and Guidance, Memorialization | November 4, 2021

Grief is year-round when you lose someone special, but it’s especially difficult during the holidays, like Thanksgiving. One meaningful way to honor their memory while making a positive difference in the lives of others is to volunteer in your community. You can gather your family and friends to spread joy and give back to others while keeping your loved one’s memory close. Here are a few ideas.


 

1. Donate Food to Families in Need This Thanksgiving 


One way to honor your loved one this Thanksgiving is to donate food to your local food pantry. It’s a good idea to reach out beforehand and see what items they need the most. Oftentimes, they need non-perishable pantry items like canned vegetables and soup, pasta, and rice. 


Another idea is to cook some Thanksgiving dishes for families in need in your community. You could even make your loved one’s favorite Thanksgiving food or use their recipes.  


 

2. Give Back to Your Local Nursing Homes and Hospice Centers 


Did your loved one live at your local nursing home or hospice center? Express your gratitude to the staff for taking care of your loved one by volunteering your time. If you cooked some Thanksgiving dishes, see if you can bring them in for the residents and staff. After dinner, you could play games with the residents and listen to their life stories. They could even share their favorite memories with your loved one. 


 

3. Make a Donation in Your Loved One’s Name 


Another way to give back while honoring your loved one is to make a donation in your loved one’s name. This could be a monetary donation to your local food pantry or another organization or cause that your loved one was passionate about. You also could see if your family and friends want to contribute. 


 

4. Gather Your Family and Friends to Participate in a Local Walk/Run 


Many communities host a 5K run/walk for Thanksgiving and have charities you can donate to and raise awareness for. To honor your loved one, you could see what events are near you and create a group to run or walk in their memory. Or you could reach out to the event organizer to see if they need any more volunteers. 


 

5. Reach Out to Your Local Funeral Home About Their Upcoming Events 


Many funeral homes host events around the holidays, such as remembrance dinners and ceremonies. Some are even live streaming their events, so families can attend virtually if they live far away or for health reasons.  


To see what events that you could attend or volunteer at, reach out to your local funeral home for more information. You also could ask them about their grief resources, mementos, and any recommendations for grief counselors in your area. To start, visit their website to see what you can find and then contact them for more information.

Highly Recommended! Very insightful, I will also say this here. Investment is one of the best ways to achieve financial freedom. I made more profit than I could ever imagine. I'm not here to converse much but to share my testimony, I have made total returns of 2 BTC from a deposit of just 0.2 BTC in 45 minutes, With DWOH special advance mining program, I only make a deposit of 0.2 BTC and in 45 minutes I received 2 BTC on my Binance wallet and i was so surprise and immediately i sold some of the bitcoin and the money was deposited into my bank account after selling the bitcoin. All thanks to DWOH for there special advance mining program, if you want to earn bitcoin in less than 1 hour contact them today

BITCOIN RECOVERY IS VERY MUCH REAL, AM A LIVING TESTIMONY!!!!

I was actually fooled and scammed over ( $753,000 ) by someone I trusted with my funds through a transaction we did and I feel so disappointed and hurt knowing that someone can steal from you without remorse after trusting them, so I started searching for help legally to recover my stolen funds and came across a lot of Testimonials about DARK WEB ONLINE HACKERS, Reovery Expert who helps in recovery lost funds, which I can tell has helped so many people who had contacted them regarding such issues and without a questionable doubt their funds was returned back to their wallet in a very short space of time, it took the expert 21 hours to help me recover my funds and the best part of it all was that the scammers was actually located and arrested by local authorities in his region which was very relieving. Hope this helps as many people who have lost their hard earn money to scammers out of trust, you can reach him through the link below for help to recover your scammed funds and thank me later.

Juan Hernandez

I was still trying to spend the $10Million jackpot I won in 2019 when I won $10million dollars after 3 years. My name is Juan Hernandez from New York.. I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Lord Erhun and he was the legitimate sorcerer who did it for me. As shocking as it will be to most people, my famous comment to the press was ''I am still trying to spend the $10million dollars I won in 2019. Again I won another $10million. My life has turned around from the moment I met Lord Erhun and decided to trust him helping me become the man I am today. Lord Erhun is a great sorcerer whose powerful spells work beyond human expectations. If you think of getting a chance to turn your life around for good and happiness I would say, contact Lord Erhun via his email; meetlorderhun@gmail.com also on Telegram (@Lord_Erhun) I believe this is the best I can do for anyone wishing and hoping to have a good life with everlasting happiness. contact him without any doubt you shall celebrate just like me everyday.. You can check out more of my interview on Youtube..

Are you seriously aiming on winning the lottery this season? Don't make it look hard for you. Reach out to Dr Ozigidon for his undisputed powerful Lottery Spell and make your dreams come true.

I admitted that life is all about sacrifice to make dreams come true. I realized this after winning the sum of $310.5 million. Yes! A whopping sum of 310.5 million dollars in 2018. Though It seems like yesterday because after all these years of being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery it still refreshes in my head. My name is Julie Leach. All thanks to Dr Ozigidon because with his undisputed powerful spell everything came so easy, it wasn't by luck or chance that i won the lottery. With Dr Ozigidon powerful spell, my dream came true. He is popularly known for his active spell. ''If I had been told I would be a multi-million winner overnight I guess I would have doubted it but Dr Ozigidon made it so easy., contact Dr Ozigidon at [drozigidonhenz.spell.net@gmail.com].
