Things You Can Do This Holiday Season….for Others

The Holiday Season is a time when we stress out about shopping, cooking, gifting and just about everything else.  But it’s actually suppose to be a time to do things for others.   This year, perhaps you would consider doing something special for others who are less fortunate.  Within your community there may be hundreds or thousands of people who don’t have the things they need to stay comfortable, healthy, or safe. If you have the means to help with donations through money, clothing or food, or if you can volunteer with places in your community that need it, now is a great time to get started.  Please consider some of these resources:

Look around your community for places that could use your help, including shelters, organizations that help displaced citizens, senior homes, and schools, and ask friends and family to help you collect items that could be useful. You can also be on the lookout for donation centers at your local grocery store; sometimes you can even find pre-bagged meals there for the less fortunate. By harnessing resources that will point you in the right direction, you can make giving back easier than ever.
