10-holiday-group-volunteering-opportunities-in-los-angeles-for-employees.jpg

If you’re like us, then it is important that you lend a helping hand to your neighbors whenever possible. While we as attorneys seek to make the community a better place by offering employment law services to employees and serving on boards for various local organizations, the holiday season always has us pondering how we can give back even more. And if you’ve found this blog post, you’re likely thinking the same yourself!

During this season of giving, it is even more helpful to the community if you consider asking your coworkers or employees to participate in a group volunteering day, offering a coworker-backed donation to a local charity, or even adding a fundraising opportunity to your corporate holiday party. Not only will these acts of giving bring comfort to those in need, but they will make everyone in the workplace feel like they are giving back – plus helping workers feel a sense of comradery.
