Gift of Giving | Enfield Loaves and Fishes

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” 
― Charles Dickens

Give the Gift of Giving this year in the Enfield, CT area by donating to Enfield Loaves and Fishes. Giving to others increases the capacity to love. Even if you don't have much, sharing with others will enrich your life. Research shows that generosity positively affects our health. An article in US News discusses how philanthropy "doles out several different happiness chemicals" in your brain. Philanthropy comes with perks! 

Giving releases dopamine and endorphins that give you a sense of euphoria. Regular giving to others in need will give you a sense of belonging, and inner peace. 

You Become Part of The Bigger Picture

You may not be able to donate much, but remember, you become part of the bigger picture. Donations are combined so that they meet the goal of helping others. Donations of time, money, or items, it doesn't matter, at some point someone will be in need and appreciate the gift. And a gift it is. To both you and the recipient. Be grateful that you have food to eat, clean water to drink and a place to live. 

Share the Gift of Giving

Giving in the name of another spreads the good feeling. It engages others to take a look at their donation habits and encourages them to give and feel good. You are spreading the good feeling and the sense of belonging. 

Here at Enfield Loaves & Fishes we not only feed the hungry, we encourage those in need to see the good in our community and become part of the bigger picture. Many of those we have helped return to help others. Our mission is to provide meals and fellowship to the poor, hungry and disenfranchised within our community. This simple act had developed into a large cycle of giving. More than providing food, anyone can ask for help in any area and we do our best to make sure their needs are met. By doing this, those in need become those who assist others in need.

Generosity comes with Advantages

Both the giver and receiver benefit, it's as simple as that. So please take the time to make a donation of any kind to Enfield Loaves and Fishes and make yourself and someone else feel good.
