It is better to give than to receive...
In honor of Giving Tuesday, the Tricerat team is sharing the ways they give back to the local community and beyond! Our organization is known for lending a helping hand and donating to those in need so we wanted to see how our team gives outside of the walls of the office. Here's how we give back:
I give time and enthusiasm to Girls On the Run of Central Maryland because I love the work they do in promoting confidence, happiness, and fitness to young ladies!
I give time and money to Planned Parenthood because of the significant health services they offer to millions of American women.
I give my time and food donations to SPAN (Severna Park Food Pantry) because helping my actual neighbors makes me more thoughtful of their problems.
I give my time to the SPCA to help them walk shelter dogs and host adoption events because I love animals and my girlfriend works for our neighborhood SPCA Wellness Clinic!
I give time and energy to South Baltimore Youth Soccer League because teaching little kids the love of sport and running them around is exciting and fun. I also give gifts to less fortunate families because everyone should have happy holidays.
I give my time, money, assistance, and whatever is needed at the time to people in need when I see the need because I believe giving should not be a scheduled program but a part of our daily lives. For example: for the waiter at restaurant struggling with school debt, I give an overly generous tip. For the woman with multiple children in shopping center parking lot, I help with the cart and loading her car. For the associate at work who has had close relative die and cannot pay for the funeral, I give as much as I can to help.
I give money to Cycle for Survival because it supports rare cancer research and honors the memory of my friend.
I give time, money, and food to Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center because there are many people in our county that need help to meet basic shelter needs.
