Six Unique Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving Day
#1 - Volunteer to stay at a children’s home while regularly scheduled workers take the day off. *This may require previous volunteer experience in order to qualify for this opportunity, due to security issues.
#2 - Visit a hospital or nursing facility and take patients or residents a small gift or just drop by to talk and say “Happy Thanksgiving.”
#3 - Deliver Thanksgiving Dinner to someone who may be spending the time alone or perhaps may not have funds to buy food for a hearty Thanksgiving Meal.
#4 - Call, email or text someone you have experienced a conflict with previously. Apologize, ask forgiveness or just reconnect in a positive way if you can do this with sincerity.
#5 - Buy a Thanksgiving gift for someone in need and take it to them.
#6 - Spend some time alone to reflect on your life, your world, your country, your state, your family, your job, etc. Set goals for a year, a month or a day.
