  • Contact your local hospital and ask if they have any patients who could use a holiday gift.
  • Donate gently-used coats and winter wear to free- and reduced-lunch schools.
  • “Adopt” a needy child for the holidays by requesting a name, buying gifts, wrapping and decorating.
  • Have your child pick out gently-used toys, books and clothes they can donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army.
  • Some organizations that focus on children:

Hunger and Poverty

  • Donate to your local food bank. Involve your child in choosing the items to donate, and in dropping them off.
  • Volunteer at a soup kitchen, shelter, or free holiday meal with your family. This is a great way to show your kids that you can also give of your time.
  • Raise funds for an organization by contributing, as a family, to a change jar.
  • Organizations working to fight hunger:

Veterans

Seniors

  • Visit a nursing home, and bring games, handmade cards and drawings, toiletries, and gifts.
  • Visit a Seniors’ Center to spend time, chat, and play games with seniors.
  • Ask a nursing home, hospice center, enrichment center, etc. what donations they need, and make a delivery with your family.
  • Some organizations working to serve seniors:
