During this Thanksgiving, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer in Mishawaka, even amid the coronavirus pandemic. Check out these ways to volunteer with your loved ones throughout the holiday season.

The Food Bank of Northern Indiana

The Food Bank of Northern Indiana provides food to individuals in need. For 2020, pantries located in a number of different cities are giving items to shoppers while also following social distancing protocols. You can either sign up to be a volunteer or donate canned protein, pantry staples, and other food to a nearby pantry.

St. Margaret’s House

St. Margaret’s House helps women and children who are currently living in poverty by giving them meals and seeing to their needs. Right now, you can purchase items off of the organization’s Amazon Wishlist and make a contact-free donation.

St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County

This organization has many volunteer and donation opportunities still available. You can adopt a family and purchase gifts for their young children so that they can enjoy the holiday season. Another option is to bring different items to the food pantry.

We at Jordan Lexus of Mishawaka hope you have an enjoyable Thanksgiving and find a way to give back to those in need. If we can assist you with anything at this time, be sure to give us a call.
