Community Service Project

One of DAC NW’ s consumers, Josh Nick was tasked with some community service. He decided to involve his daughter Kyra to gather items for the homeless in the Lewiston area. DAC NW office served as a drop off for this project. It wasn’t long before our back room was filled with items for the homeless. They collected warm clothing, snacks, personal supplies and other essentials. They even collected backpacks to hold the items. P1FCU also donated blankets.

Josh wanted to include his daughter in this project to give her a sense of how important it is to help others. Everyone knows that doing community service helps the community.

But did you know there are positive benefits for the person who volunteers? This is a great way to make new friends and contacts with a common interest. Strengthening these relationships can offer benefits in the future.

By involving your family, your children learn first hand how good it feels to help other people and animals and enact change. Volunteering combats depression, and boosts self-confidence and self-esteem.

People with disabilities can be great volunteers. Look for opportunities in your community that match your interests and abilities.
