5 Ways To Give Back During the Holidays


Winter is coming and so are the crowds, cold and expenses. It seems that the best part of the holiday is the look on the recipients face as they receive a gift or one that doesn't involve you going broke or paying for months after it's over.

We know that expenses are a part of the holidays, so why not make this holiday the most memorable by helping others?

There are simple ways to make every holiday one to remember. Starting a family tradition that involves helping others is a great place to start. 


 5 Ways To Give Back On The Holidays

  1. Pick names from a hat of those in need and have a set amount for a gift from adults and a craft from a child to deliver to the person they chose.
  2. Enjoy a holiday dinner and have each person tell the family what they are grateful for.
  3. Make a holiday dinner for a needy or lonely neighbor and deliver it or invite them over for dinner
  4. Give new toys to children/adults in the cancer unit or Toys for Tots.
  5. Deliver a coat or sweater to someone in need.

Helping others during the holiday is what makes us stronger as a community. Remembering those that are less fortunate will bring more blessing your way than you can imagine. The feeling of giving alone is a gift that is unlike any other. Just try it and you will see what I mean.

Giving is contagious and such a wonderful feeling. What will you give to make someone else smile and feel wanted? It doesn't take much; even a warm smile or hug is always appreciated. Happy Holidays!
