Whether through donation or action, ‘tis the season of giving! Continue reading to discover five ways you can give back this holiday season.
Bake cookies. As a family, pass out homemade cookies to your local first responders, or take some to your neighbors! Nothing brings joy quite like delicious holiday desserts.
Pack stockings for families in need. Purchase some inexpensive stockings, and select practical and fun items to stuff in them. Some ideas include snacks, toothpaste, warm gloves, and gift cards. You can donate the stockings to your local community center or homeless shelter to make sure they go to those who need it most.
Bring lunch to people who work over the holidays. Police stations, fire stations, and even retail stores are full of busy workers over the holidays. Prepare some snacks to take to the workers in your area who don’t get a break this time of year.
Host a holiday gathering. Sometimes hospitality is the best way to give back. Host a holiday gathering with help from your family, but focus on inviting those who are often forgotten, such as neighbors who live alone and co-workers without family nearby.
Volunteer at your local food pantry. You can have a big impact by giving just a few hours of your time to your local food pantry. It won’t cost you anything, but the feeling of helping your neighbors in need during the holiday season is priceless.
