New Year, New Decade, New Habits
It’s a new year, as well as a new decade, and the new year brings with it another year of opportunities to make a difference in the communities where we work and live. Carrington Charitable Foundation sponsors a number of opportunities to give and serve throughout the year – such as May’s Boxes for Our Troops, June’s Special Olympics Summer Games, the celebrated CCF Golf Classic (scheduled for October 12th, 2020) and Run Ranger Run (happening now). In addition to these annual initiatives, 2020 will no doubt bring plenty of opportunities for all of us to make the world a better place.
In addition to helping those in need, you’re also doing something good for yourself. The Corporation for National and Community Service says that volunteering improves psychological and physical health. Volunteers reap the benefits of feeling a personal sense of accomplishment while building social networks that, in turn, support them in times of stress. Doing good, it seems, is its own reward.
So this year, CCF thanks you for doing what you can, when you can, for the less fortunate. Whether you’re helping senior citizens, the homeless, special needs children, animals or all of those, your generosity is a powerful force of good in the world.
