There are so many ways that you can get involved and create positive change in and around Memphis. Here are a few tips.
PARTICIPATE IN HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVES
During this holiday season, many businesses encourage employees to bring in unopened non-perishable canned and boxed foods that can be donated to the Mid-South Food Bank. This is a fantastic way to help our community, and it requires very little additional time. Donate some food items today!

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO GET INVOLVED WITH?
Memphis is a giving city, and there is one website that captures the spirit of Giving Back perfectly. Go check out cityCURRENT.com. Like them, follow them, and share them today. The goal of cityCURRENT is to be a force for good.
PROMOTE THE POSITIVE
You can help promote the positive things being done by local businesses and organizations with a simple share on Social Networks. When you see someone doing something amazing, spread the word my liking, sharing, and commenting on Facebook.
BE THE SPARK!
We love The Spark TV show. The idea is to be the Spark that creates the changes you want to see. You can do this by starting up a community activity of your own. You can also get involved with the many local events going on every year that raise money for community organizations. You will love yourself for doing it while bringing smiles to the faces of those in need.
CREATE A GIVING BUDGET
Make it a goal to GiveBack something every month. Put it in your budget and then each month browse our directory of organizations. See what they do, how they are making an impact, and then select a different one each month to donate to. Every dollar counts!
