It’s that time of year again: the Holiday Season. This means a time to be with family and friends, but it usually turns into who can give the best gifts? Many people forget the real reason behind the holidays and focus on what they will be getting. I know I am guilty of this getting caught up in the holiday season, especially when it comes time to making Christmas lists and shopping for loved ones. This year though I have decided to turn over a new leaf.
After working with the North Texas Food Bank, and Austin Street Centre, I’ve realized how many families have become down on their luck because of the recession and I want to try to give back more. Whether this means donating an extra hour of volunteering, or canned foods, or supporting a family from the Angel Tree, I want these families and individuals to have a great holiday season. If everyone gives back, even something small like donating a dollar to the Salvation Army Santas, that can help turn around someone’s holidays and make this place a little bit brighter. Happy Holidays!
