Reaching Out

Five nonprofits to support this holiday season
While the holidays can be a time of excess (food, gifts or money spent), that excess can also be a time to remind us of how fortunate we are to have that opportunity. Helping out a charity, through time spent volunteering, giving a cash donation or a donation of food/items can be a great way to get people, especially kids, thinking about how important it is to give back to the community.
