Ways to Give Back to Your Community During the Holidays

Looking for ways to give back this holiday season? Here are a few ideas.

1. Go for wags and wiggles

Local animal shelters always need an extra hand, whether it's for walking dogs, socializing cats or the critical daily chores required to save homeless pets.

2. Yes you can

Clear your cabinets of canned food and other non-perishable items – or fill a shopping cart at the store with items to donate – and drop them off at your local food bank.

3. Schmooze with seniors

Volunteer at a local senior center and spend time with an older person who might be feeling especially lonely around the holidays.

4. Give fun

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation collects gifts for kids from needy families. Donation boxes can often be found at local businesses. You can also consider organizing your own collection. Learn more at www.toysfortots.org.

5. Swing a hammer

Santa's not the only one on the rooftops this time of year. The national nonprofit Habitat for Humanity always has projects going. See where you can help in your neighborhood at www.habitat.org.
