Live well by giving back Most kids want to be on Santa's nice list.

With a little effort, you can make a big difference in people's lives at the same time. The holidays are here and are a perfect time to give back for many area families.

“Part of living well for our community is helping others,” said Katie Scofield, Numerica Credit Union Financial Education Officer.

“It's about lending a helping hand and celebrating what makes our community great.”

With over 13,200 hours given in community service last year, Numerica has some ways you can come together to make life better this holiday season:

1. Give in your neighborhood. Make treats for neighbors or create coupons for shoveling snow.

2. Give to a family. Whether you decide to donate all the fixings for a holiday meal or “adopt a family” and purchase presents, you can make the season brighter for a family in need. Your family can work together to decide what you are going to do, go shopping together and even deliver the donations as a family.

3. Give in your community.

4. “To teach kids the importance of community support, Numerica tries to teach the idea of “Spend, Save, Share,” said Scofield. “You can spend up to 70 percent for wants/needs, save 25 percent for the future, and share 5 percent in the community.”
