The 2018 Blue Cares Sporting Clay Shoot is right around the corner! It is a great opportunity for family and friends to come together to give back to a great cause as a group. Giving back to your community in a team effort is beneficial for everyone involved. Thousands, if not millions, of people around the world suffer from poverty, lack of resources, and a variety of severe challenges, and it is our responsibility as members of the community to come together and make a positive change by giving back.

Whether you volunteer with family, friends, or coworkers, giving is a positive and rewarding experience. People who spend their money on others are happier than the people who spend money on themselves. Additionally, volunteering boosts physical and mental health and is proven to reduce blood pressure, stress levels, and depression. If you are committed to a purpose outside yourself, you may experience better cognitive function and have an easier time sleeping.

If you’re volunteering as a business, your efforts can make a positive impression on customers and clients, or even employees who want to be part of a team with similar values and goals. Publicizing your company’s volunteer efforts could draw people to you, but you could also inspire someone to commit their own good deeds.
There are dozens of non-profit organizations to choose to give back to. Blue Cares strives to work alongside other non-profits, especially those who share our goal to serve underprivileged children and families. Find a charity that aligns with your team’s views. Make sure your donations are going to a cause you believe in and make the most out of your time volunteering.

Participating in the Sporting Clay Shoot benefits less fortunate families in San Antonio and programs such as the Blue Cares Scholarship! The 2018 Sporting Clay Shoot takes place on May 19th at the National Shooting Complex. Blue Cares would like to thank everyone who has participated in a team so far, all sponsors, and all the volunteers.
