Ways to Give and Feel Good
In this holiday season, consider giving back to the community! Scientists have found that it’s good for you to do an act of kindness for someone else. Research has discovered that our brains release neurotransmitters that make us feel good when we do good. In this week’s blog, we surveyed our Engage San Francisco community partners in the Fillmore District / Western Addition and compiled a list of ways to give. Please find one way that fits your own level of time, treasure and talent. It feels good!
Hygiene kit donations can be collected and dropped off at Ella Hill Hutch at Webster and McAllister. Visit this link to learn more about what supplies are needed.
