My best advice to new residents is- The gift of time is often more valuable to the receiver and more satisfying for the giver than the gift of money. We don’t all have the same amount of money, but we all do have the same amount of time on our hands, and we can give some of this time to help others, whether that means we devote our selves to a service, or just give a few moments each day to sit and talk with someone.
