What have you done for Topsail Island lately? If you love living in Topsail or vacationing on our beaches then it stands to reason that you value the natural coastal beauty, appreciate the small-town Southern hospitality, and cherish the quintessential beach community that surrounds you. How can you make it even better? By giving back, of course.
Here are three of the best ways you can give back to Topsail Island and help to maintain all of the qualities we love about the best little beach town in America.
Volunteer Your TimeAn easy but effective way to give back to Topsail Island is to volunteer your time. Take a portion of your week or your month to use your talents and abilities for the greater good of our island. Whether you decide to help monitor our local sea turtle population, sign up to assist at our local festivals, spend your time helping at our area schools, volunteering for the fire department or helping to organize a local fundraising event, your time and assistance are priceless gifts!
The Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism also offers opportunities to volunteer and can help guide you toward other local organizations who may need your help.
Shop Local, Buy LocalAnother easy way to give back to our Topsail Island community is by shopping local and buying local. Your hard-earned dollars benefit our small businesses and help boost our local economy.
When you go to our local festivals and events, buy from our area artisans and crafters, shop at our Topsail markets, and choose a local business over a national chain, you are giving back to the heart and soul of our island. You also receive the added benefit of knowing you are getting the best of what our area has to offer from the fresh, local produce to the unique, handcrafted goods along with quality, personalized service.

Whether it be a friendly smile to brighten someone's day, purchasing a cup of coffee for a stranger, picking up extra pieces of trash on the beach, donating to a charitable organization, or volunteering your time—you should do it!
There can never be too much kindness in this world. You never know how the simplest kind word, thoughtful act or good deed can positively impact someone's life or the greater community.
Thank you for giving back to our beloved community. Topsail Island as a whole along with its residents, vacationers and visitors are eternally grateful.
