Season of Giving Back

Tis’ the season of giving rather than receiving! give

We may be planning an over-the-top holiday feast which will provide leftovers for days. Many of us have long wish-lists from our children, or catalogs with circles around the toys or gadgets they want this year.

Young children are egocentric by nature, and are only able to focus on themselves and their own wants and needs; they may not be aware of all the children and families who do not have as much good fortune as they do.

This is the time to sit down with your children and discuss that there are people out there who are less fortunate and may not receive gifts this holiday season. Not only are there children who will not receive gifts, but children who are sick in the hospital, families to be “adopted” and food banks running low on supplies.

Speak with your child about the possibility of sorting through their toys, old clothes and winter accessories that could be donated to those less fortunate. Involving your child in activities and events like Toys for TotsThe Salvation Army Red Kettles or helping at a soup kitchen are all ways to broaden their horizons and help realize that children and families come from all walks of life, and a little bit can go a long way.

Ways to GIVE BACK this holiday season:

  • Collect clothing or personal items to donate to a local shelter for the homeless
  • Make crafts to donate to a local children’s hospital
  • “Adopt” a family who is in need of items for the holidays
  • Collect food for local food banks
  • Make greeting cards for people in a veteran’s hospital or other health care facility
  • “Adopt” a service person stationed overseas, collect items and send them in a gift box
  • Donate toys or hats/mittens/socks to a local charity or shelter
