10 Ways To Give Thanks

BAY CITY, Mich. – Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is the time of year to be with family and reflect on all of the blessings in your life. Being thankful for what you have is a very important lesson to teach to your children. Try some of these 10 ways to give thanks to be more introspective and appreciative this Thanksgiving season.

10 Ways To Give Thanks

Write Thank You Letters

Go to the store and buy some thank you letters. Write a heartfelt message to all those in your life who you are thankful for and deliver the letters before Thanksgiving!


Whether its food, clothing, or money, donating to help those in need is a great way to give back and appreciate the things you have.


Volunteering your time is something that anyone can do. Whether it be at an animal shelter, a local homeless shelter, or a soup kitchen, it's always important to give back. All of these places can especially use your help during the holiday season.

Give Out Gifts

Bake some treats, get some dollar store toys, or make little goody-bags to give out to friends, teachers, and other people in your life.

Create a Thankful Tree

Grab a fallen tree branch out of your backyard to start making a Thankful Tree! This simple craft is a great way to have a conversation with your children about being thankful for the things they have like family, pets, their favorite toys, and more.

Talk About Being Thankful at Dinner

Before you sit down together, at Thanksgiving or any other night this November, take a moment, go around the table and have each family member say what they are thankful for.

Be Extra Grateful Out in Public

Spread gratitude and kindness out in public to make the world a nicer place this November. Say thank you, smile, be vocally appreciative to your neighbors, store clerks, and others.

Send a Care Package to Military Members

Show your thanks and appreciation for our military service members by sending them a care package for the holidays with treats, letters, and other comforts from home. We recommend going through Operation Gratitude.

Donate a Thanksgiving Dinner

You can donate to local food banks and sponsor a family in need with a Thanksgiving dinner this year. It will mean a great deal to the family you sponsor to have a warm meal on Thanksgiving.

Invite Those in Need to Thanksgiving

Can you think of anyone you know who might benefit from a warm and friendly meal? Maybe someone you know who doesn't have a family Thanksgiving of their own to go to or family friends who have fallen on hard times? Reach out to them and make a difference this holiday season.
