Between the holiday party frenzy and the nonstop Christmas shopping, it feels good to give back during the holiday season. You don’t have to donate money in order to help; there are organizations that are willing to take new items, homemade ones, and just about every one of your no-longer-used objects lying around the house. With locations around the country, these charities work hard to help those in need not only at Christmas, but all year round! It’s also a great way to get rid of those no longer needed toys that your children have grown out of, and give them to a child who will cherish them dearly!
Donate new or gently used coats!
Write a letter to your troops wishing them a happy holiday season!
get rid of those old phones in junk drawers, donate them to your troops so they can call home for the holiday season!
Donate blankets that will be used for veterans, wheel chairs, and shelter donations!
Be sure to look at all the welcoming charities that need your help. They all have a common mission of helping those in need while spreading the holiday cheer!
