5 Reasons to Give

1. A GREAT WAY TO COMMEMORATE LOVE

Love is a much needed emotion in today’s world and it is always welcomed. It is a great way of cashing in on your own moral savings. Many people donate to charities that they are passionate about, they also donate to remember a loved one or to remember their own troubles. It is one of the best ways to show the world that you do indeed care about something.

2. CHARITY REFLECTS ON YOUR OWN INNER VALUES

For many people, charity is a direct reflection of their own inner values. It is a deeply fulfilling exercise to be able to give to a cause that you are passionate about. In many cases people reflect on their own troubles and give away to charities that they can relate to morally. It also offers an insight into your own self and the areas where you could improve and get help.

3. AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK

Charity is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the world that we take so much from. Charity can be given to your old community, to your old school or even to your old neighborhood. It is also a sign that you have not forgotten where you came from and are grateful to your past.

4. CHARITY BOOSTS MOTIVATION

Charity will help you boost your own motivation to go further in life. A lot of people all around the world work diligently towards the charities that they have an interest in. Since it is a very fulfilling act to give, it will help you add to your own personal motivation too. People who donate are often driven to donate more and a person can only donate more if they have more.

5. HELPS EARN RESPECT

Donations can help you earn respect in many areas. Philanthropy is a noble act that only people with a good heart can fall into and it also earns you a lot of respect from your peers and society in general. Other than that, it will also earn you the undying respect of the people or organizations that you donate to.

USF Salutes The US Postal Carriers

They did it again! United Samaritans Foundation salutes and says thank you to the postal carriers for their hard work and to the Turlock community they serve for their generosity! 

The annual US Postal Carriers Canned Food Drive was held on May 13th. The total amount of food collected was 6,935 lbs!

The food collected by our local Postal Carriers was donated to USF to be used in our Emergency Food Box Program to help needy families in Turlock. We would especially like to thank Billy Nix, our USF employee, who has been in charge of this event for several years, and of course all the wonderful volunteers who came out to sort and box the canned food that was donated!
