In fact, New Braunfels is the 13th fastest growing city in the nation and is expected to grow another 34% in the next 15 years! So how do you go about showing your love for the city you appreciate and admire? Here’s a good place to start.
There are numerous New Braunfels non-profit organizations that offer volunteer opportunities. Whether you are called to help animals, want to find a volunteer activity in the construction arena, or are looking to work with kids, you can find a meaningful non-profit here.
Get involved in a club
Organizations like New Braunfels’ American Cancer Society, Braunfels Foundation Trust, and Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area are just a few of the clubs in New Braunfels you can research to find the perfect fit.
Keeping tax dollars in the city keeps money in the city, which supports its growth and infrastructure. And that means even more shops, amenities, and added convenience.
“Shopping local stimulates the local economy,” said US Bank Connect. “When you shop at locally owned stores, the money you spend stays within the community. That's because local businesses are more likely to purchase from other local businesses. The result is that the local tax base grows, and you can help your local businesses keep each other growing. A stronger tax base means improved schools, better roads, and greater support for your local police and fire departments.” Another advantage to buying local: it creates more local jobs.
Get involved in local politics—or at least stay aware of important issues
Looking to be a leader? Run for City council or the School Board. Or, simply keep up with what’s going on in the city. An informed individual is one who can help make change and continue to keep positive growth rolling along.
Keep it clean
It’s all of our responsibility to keep the streets and neighborhoods clean from litter. But if you really want to make an impact, organize a park or river cleanup!
