Christmas Food Drive up-date

KHOBCARE, LLC raised over 2000 non-perishable items to assist in our community contributions for 12/2021. Why is this important to KHOBCARE, LLC? We can be leaders in our communities by collecting unspoiled, healthy food and donating it to our neighbors in need. By donating food, we’re feeding people, not landfills, supporting local communities, and saving all the resources that went into producing that food from going to waste.

2 Corinthians 8:14

at this present time your abundance being a supply for their need, so that their abundance also may become a supply for your need, that there may be equality;

Isaiah 58:10 If you give some of your own food to [feed] those who are hungry and to satisfy [the needs of] those who are humble, then your light will rise in the dark, and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun. Isaiah 58:7 Share your food with the hungry and give shelter to the homeless.

One of the most altruistic behaviors is helping our fellow people around us. However, many people end up volunteering or helping others due to selfish motives – pleasing friends and acquaintances or wanting to do something more meaningful with their lives. Whatever may be your motives to help others, you can be certain it will improve your happiness levels, health and in some cases, also promote longevity.

Why Do People Indulge in Altruistic Behaviors?

Being completely selfless is something we, as humans, haven’t mastered. It may be a little easier for Christians to be more giving since it is part of their doctrine but even for them, giving to someone who is irresponsible is tough and perhaps unwise. Hence and furthermore, when we volunteer to help the needy and less fortunate, there are reasons behind it. Some of the main reasons why people like to help others are:

• Esteem enhancement: The good deed makes us feel better about ourselves and hence, brings more stability in our lives

• Personal development: By stretching ourselves and going out of our way to help others, we test our capabilities and also end up acquiring new skills that can come in handy in the future

• Sense of community: By feeding or volunteering, we make our community a better place

• Humanitarianism: Serving and helping others invokes a strong religious or spiritual feeling in people. A person who helps others is often idealized by those who do not. Such people are put on a pedestal.

Be a great pillar throughout life and throughout our community!
