We participate in a lot of our local Angel programs through the Salvation Army. My family does the Food Angels, and at work we do a Forgotten Angel.

Kelly said...

We like to give through Samaritan's purse. Last year we gave goats. Also I like to put a little in the Salvation army bucket when they are outside the stores. That way some of the money I donate stays local.

The best way that I've been able to give back is to educate my children of the true meaning of the holiday season.

hailey said...

I like to give back by volunteering but also i like collecting things for shelters and pantries and then donating these things to them. It really makes someones day

JennicaGayle said...

I am on staff with a non-profit and we do a Christmas Store each year. We collect donations of new toys and cloths, and families in the under-resourced area we work in come in and pick out and purchase a box of items for each of their children at an extremely low cost. This helps preserve their dignity in being able to say "I purchased these gifts for my children".

supermandy said...

I volunteer at my kids' school pretty much year-round, but during the holidays we buys toys for the Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, or any other charities we come across. We also look for local families that haven't connected with any charities but need some extra help.

becky said...

we usually donate to toys for tots. This year my daughters preschool has 'adopted' a couple of families that could use some help purchasing gifts.

Bernadette N said...

usagypsy said...

I used to take my animals to nursing homes and adult care facilities. I loved doing that, but health problems caused me to stop. So I donate what I can, when I can. Whether it is a few dollars at a local Pet Smart. Or a Children's Hospital. Or even sometimes a street person. I even once gave a bag of dog cookies that I had in my car to a street person for his dog. He was so happy to get them! Some times its the little things that can make someone's day!

rain_in_a_teacup said...

It might sound a little lame, but I truly do try to make people smile and feel happy everywhere I go. I'm the strange person that just smiled at you as you passed me in the street!

margaret said...

I make little afghans for the animal shelter nearby and I also donate whatever I can to help animals in need that come into the shelters. Every year when the postal service collects at our mailboxes for the food bank I put out a bag full of can goods for those in need.
