Give Back For The Holidays

It is no secret that giving to others wreaks many benefits to those who give and those who receive. The holidays are a time for reflection; to reflect on who has given to you and what you can give in return. At Arbor View Family, we are very grateful for all we have received and would like to start off the holiday season by giving back to those in need. We will once again be collecting toys for Toys For Tots, and non-perishable food items for Lutheran Social Services, to help make the holidays a little brighter for those in need. We will be collecting these items at our office through December 15th, 2017. There are many benefits to giving. By giving, you can fight depression, increase your happiness, and feel a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Researchers from the University of Buffalo confirmed a link between giving and unselfishness and having a lower risk of early mortality. Published in the American Journal of Public Health, the findings show that helping others is linked with a decreased mortality risk. The Cleveland Clinic has associated giving with additional health benefits, including lower blood pressure, increased self-esteem, less depression, lower stress levels, longer life and greater happiness.
Make this holiday season brighter for you and others, by making giving a priority.
