Hello all! Welcome to the Well Lean Blog! :) Today we wanted to raise a topic that holds very near and dear to our hearts here at Well Lean, that topic is giving back!
“What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.”
Quote by Greek philosopher Aristotle, one of the most ancient quotes about service to others offers proof that giving back is certainly not a new concept.
Giving back comes in many forms:
- Community service
- Donating your time to a local non-profit
- Random acts of kindness
- Social Work
- Donating Food
- Volunteer work
The list goes on! What really ties these things all together is the value everyone gets out of it in the end. By giving back and helping others in need we become closer as a community.
For those interested in ways they can also give back, checkout this blog post HERE, from TogetherWeRise.org where they dive into more detail on some of the ways you can get involved within your own community! Be sure to checkout their website too as they are doing amazing work for children in foster care.
There are so many important causes that can use volunteers, donations, or other forms of helping out to support the work they are doing. Whether you’re passionate about animal rights, or helping the homeless, you can find a valuable way to donate your time. Many areas have community centers, which can be a great place to find opportunities to give back to the place you call home.
You can also check websites like Idealist, as well as many others for volunteer opportunities that fit your interests and abilities. Even if you only donate a few hours of time each month, you will be making a huge difference in the lives of others.
With so many people less fortunate than those of us who can afford to have 3 square meals a day, and with 17 million children struggling with hunger in America – 6 million more than before the pandemic, giving back to the community is becoming more essential than ever.
With that being said, we would like to thank the following companies, pantry's, and food banks here in Nevada, as well as in San Diego!
A BIG thank you to:
As well as, all the workers/volunteers involved within those teams! We got the chance to work with these amazing teams to help donate thousands of Well Lean packages over the year! Click above on them to find out more information about their work and how you can get involved :)
Well Lean Gives Back!
With the help from the teams listed above, Well Lean has been able to donate a total of $20,000+ worth of product to those in need.
Again, we would like to thank all of those out there who continue to volunteer and give back to those in need. From the workers, to the students/staff at UCSD Triton Food Pantry, you all play such a big role in giving back to the communities and we just want to thank you!
Thank you all for your endless love and support throughout the years. None of this would be possible without it! As always stay safe and take care <3
