7 Ways to Give Back This Holiday Season

7 Ways to Give Back This Holiday Season

DURAND, Mich.,–– Although the holidays revolve around spending time with loved ones, it's also a good time to think about those who are less fortunate. Helping others is a part of our human nature; whether it's lending a hand to a neighbor, volunteering at a local soup kitchen, or just simply getting involved in the community. Even the smallest acts of kindness make a huge difference. Take part in something special and enjoy the feeling of giving with these 7 ways to give back this holiday season:

1. Pack up stockings for the homeless. Purchase some cheap stockings from your local dollar store and fill them with practical and useful items, such as snacks, water, a toothbrush/toothpaste, and warm pieces of clothing (hats/gloves/socks).

2. Get rid of old toys. Clean out and declutter your kid's old toy box. Donate the old and unused toys to a children's hospital or a foundation like "Toys for Tots".

3. Participate in a local food drive or donate to a local food bank. Gather up any non-perishable foods and canned goods you may have for donation. You can find a local food pantry in your area here.

4. Donate your old coats to Goodwill/Salvation Army or a local homeless shelter. If you have old jackets laying around that are in good condition, gather them up so that you can donate them to those in need.

5. Volunteer at a local animal shelter. If you're an animal lover, this is a great way to spend your time helping out dogs and cats that have been neglected.

6. Use Amazon Smile. Are you an avid Amazon shopper? Instead of using the regular "amazon.com" URL, register your account through "smile.amazon.com". It's the same Amazon you use, except 0.5% of your eligible purchases will be donated to the charity of your choice.

7. Adopt a family. Sponsor a family in your area in need of help this holiday season. By signing up as a sponsor, you'll be able to provide direct support, such as food, toys, and clothing, to a family in need.

"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
