Thankful Thursdays and Sharing Our Gratitude

Did you know that November is “National Gratitude Month?” With Thanksgiving almost here, it’s the perfect time of year to practice being grateful and appreciative for what we have.

Gratitude helps us enjoy, appreciate, and be more satisfied with our lives. Grateful people deal with life’s ups and downs more gracefully. And now research suggests that being grateful can make you happier and is good for your health. A positive attitude can give you more energy, reduce stress and even boost your immune system!

So how can you get your family started on a journey to becoming more grateful this November? It’s easy. Hang a big piece of paper on the wall and bring out some fun writing tools. Encourage each family member to write what they’re grateful for. The goal is to add to the list every day until the end of the month.

At Community Financial we are so grateful for our members and the communities we serve. To help spread our gratitude this November, we’ve started a program called “Thankful Thursdays.” Every Thursday until December 1 we will be making a donation to local food pantries in our north and south districts. In total, we will donate $50,000 to help feed our communities!

Check out our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) every Thursday to see which organizations in your community will receive a donation.

#ThankfulThursdays is just one way we can show our appreciation. What are you doing this November to show gratitude?
