A Kind Heart Gives & Receives

“It is better to give than receive” is a saying most of us are familiar with. But the truth is, by giving we do receive. We receive that fullness of heart that our effort has made a difference. Often times, our little efforts helps others more than we can imagine.

Catholic Central has a rich history of service and this year is no different. Currently, our students are gathering donations for our Thanksgiving Drive and Christmas Families which benefit Cathedral Clothing Center, Westminster Food Pantry, Heartside Health Clinic and more than 40 other individual families. The students fill our halls with their generosity, and their giving spirit radiates throughout.

There are so many wonderful giving opportunities throughout West Michigan. If your family is looking to lend a helping hand, consider giving your time to one of the organizations listed below.

Research suggests that people who do good for others have reduced stress and anxiety, have a greater sense of overall happiness, and ultimately live longer than people that do not. ‘Tis the season, but why stop there? Keep that giving heart pumping all year long.

You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your works and in to which you put your hand. Deuteronomy 15:10
