As part of HOTC’s 20th anniversary celebration in 2023, we are excited to introduce a guide that will allow you to gain a deeper connection to all the wonderful opportunities in our community. The Points of Light Civic Circle helps individuals connect to opportunities and understand that you can do good in many different ways. Keep an eye out for the following icons on our volunteer event day opportunities. They’ll help you identify actions that are part of the Civic Circle. How many different ways will you give back this year?

Volunteer – You may choose to give your time and talents inside and outside of your home to help your community or a cause you care about.

Purchase Power – You can make decisions that reflect your values or advance a social cause or issue by choosing where you do and don’t spend your money.

Service – You may commit your time, energy & talent to public, national or military service and civic work.

Vote – In democratic societies, voting is your opportunity to participate in the democratic process for national and local elections, supporting causes and candidates aligned with your positions.

Work – You may decide to make choices about your employment based on the organization’s values and the purpose. In many cases, you may also use your workplace as a platform to advance social issues.

Voice – You can use your voice to influence your family, friends, and others, to raise awareness for an issue you care about.

Donate – This is your ability to contribute money, services or goods to support the welfare of others or to advance a social cause you care about.

Listen & Learn – We need to stay informed, think critically and educate ourselves before acting. The more informed you are, the better decisions you can make about how to best serve your community.

Social Entrepreneur – You may identify a need that has not been met by traditional institutions, structures and systems, and be able to lead creative and innovative solutions that drive change.

Choose one, choose all. Don’t just be a concerned resident; be an active, involved citizen. Make your community what you want it to be. To read more about the Points of Light Civic Circle, visit: https://www.pointsoflight.org/civic-circle/
