There are many ways to get your name out there to others. Why not help others as you help yourself? There are many ways to help out local organizations in your community. If you’re on more of a time crunch, think about taking up a collection.

Is a local school in need of new books? Take up a book drive! Set up a box in your hallway and post signs so your clients and others in your community can come in to donate their books. Maybe you can collect coats for the needy this winter. The list is endless. You will feel good knowing you helped others, and will increase traffic to your location-a true win-win. If you’re short on ideas, approach a local organization directly-I’m sure they can help you jump-start your new annual collection drive
