Are you grateful for your blessings?

roofoveryourheaddayDecember 3 is #nationalroofoveryourheadday

National Roof Over Your Head Day was created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head.  There are many things that we have that we take for granted and do not stop to appreciate how fortunate we are for having them.

All across our nation, there are many that do not have the things that necessary to everyday life. They may lack a roof over their heads, enough food to eat or clothes to wear. For those who have those bare necessities, it may be insufficient.

National Roof Over Your Head Day is about remembering to appreciate what you have.  This day follows closely after Thanksgiving, a day to be thankful.  So just like Thanksgiving, be thankful for what you do have and always remember, that it is a better feeling than worrying about what you do not have.

HOW TO OBSERVE

To celebrate National Roof Over Your Head Day you can pick a name or two off of a Christmas Giving Tree, volunteer at or make a contribution to a homeless shelter in your area and maybe someone else will be able to have a “roof over their head” tonight. Use #RoofOverYourHeadDay to post on social media.

Many branches of Pioneer Bank are participating in community programs. Several have the Marine Corps Toys for Tots collection boxes.  Our branch at #2 St. Mary’s Place in Roswell also has a Salvation Army Giving Tree.   We encourage you to visit out team members to see how you can help at all of our branches.
