Cupid’s Advice: 

Being a part of a celebrity couple is not a prerequisite for participating in volunteer work with your partner. There are countless ways for you to give back to your community, whether it be a monetary donation, or giving your time to a charity. Check out Cupid’s advice for how you can give back to those in need:

1. Donate old clothing to the Salvation Army: Everyone is guilty of having way too many clothes in their closets and drawers. Consider sorting through all your old clothes with your partner, and do the same in his or her closet. Sort clothes into keep and donate piles, making sure to donate clothes that you haven’t worn in a year or more. Google your local Salvation Army location and make a trip down there with all of your donated clothes.
