ReachLocal Reaches Out: 2011 Volunteering and Community Service

Last updated 2 years ago

At ReachLocal, we’re passionate about all things local. So when it comes to reaching out to our local communities during the holidays, many of us know it’s our time to shine. Take a look at how some ReachLocal offices have been busy donating their time, resources and seasonal cheer to local neighbors in need.

This year, ReachLocal Dallas was busy with a number of efforts, including: assembling and distributing personal care kits to distribute to a local shelter, hosting a canned food drive, and contributing to a toy drive for the Salvation Army.
