It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but while most of us are blessed enough to be worrying about whether we’ll cook turkey or ham for dinner and what to buy our parents, many are worried about where their next meal will come from or where they will sleep tonight. Conservatives are notoriously charitable, so why not dedicate at least twelve days in December to giving back? Whether you want to assign these ideas to individual day to just make a point to complete some of these tasks throughout the month, consider them your commitment to giving back during the most wonderful time of the year.
1) Donate 10 non-perishable food items to a local food bank or shelter
Everyone needs to eat, and the big meals expected during the holiday season, and when it’s cold, can really put a strain on families struggling to put food on the table. Without a doubt, your own pantry is overflowing with food you don’t need or want or you have enough money to make some quick purchases. People think about donating soup and canned vegetables, but I encourage you to think outside the box with these donations. What would you want this holiday season? I recommend donating pasta and pasta sauce, canned vegetables for popular side dishes, cake mixes, et cetera.
