1. Donate to a Charity

This can be through a race, like a Jingle Bell 5k, or collecting toys or food for a needy family. Or even taking time as a family to volunteer together with a local organization. The holidays are a time to be thankful for what you have and give back to those who are in need.

Donating to a food bank?

Think about the types of foods you and your family would want for the holiday season. Food banks get a lot of beans, peanut butter, canned corn, and “Ramen”-type noodles.  To find out what’s most needed in your area, and when/ how you can donate perishable items like fresh produce, meat, and bread contact your local food bank.
