CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH

Women have been making the world a better place for centuries— breaking down barriers, advancing research, and making life-saving discoveries. Now, it’s our turn. Honor their history by working to improve the future: Volunteer with Alzheimer’s Association, Susan G. Komen, and other charities supporting women. Support Women’s Health and help women live longer, healthier lives

This Women’s History Month, continue the tradition of building stronger, healthier communities—for everyone.

SPRING INTO GOOD HEALTH

March is National Kidney Month. Use this month to get a kick-start on the National Kidney Foundation’s kidney-healthy habits that will help keep your kidneys (and you) running.

March 28 is American Diabetes Association Alert Day: 9 out of 10 people at risk for diabetes don’t know it—take the Diabetes Risk Test today and learn more through our diabetes health resources.

April 7 is World Health Day. Share health resources and support Health Disparities, ensuring that every individual, family, and child has the access to health resources they need

VOLUNTEER TOOLBOX: COMFORT KITS

More often than not, families arrive at hospitals and homeless or women’s shelters with very little. Show them someone cares by providing Comfort Kits, ranging from goodie bags filled with playing cards and candy to new towel sets. Small in-kind donations can have a big impact.

This volunteer idea, and many more, are available in our “Volunteer On the Spot” toolkit.
