be at the mercy of the local food bank, other people's generosity and have a need that we are financially unable to fill...

Tis the season, Pervians, for those who are able to donate canned, packaged and non-perishable food items to your local food banks. Help make someone else' Holiday a Holiday. Think about the kinds of things that your family loves to have for a Holiday dinner and try to donate some of those things yourself.

I know that not everyone is able, financially, to kick in much.. but every little bit helps.

Then, next month, begins the Giving Tree/Tree of Joy type units as well as more food bank possibilities.

If you cannot donate things or money, one can donate time like volunteer to man the food bank.

I donate what I can. Sometimes it could be some loose change for the Salvation Army bell ringers. Or, I might donate $1 at Pet Smart to help animals. Our local post office here about this time of year hands out bags so postal customers can donate canned food. I usually give a can of veggies.

In the past in my families time of need. Several groups and foodbanks have helped us out. Believe me we are thankful for those people and donate whatever we can and whenever we can. Keep those cans going there are still people that need them.

I agree our local food banks are "starving". Next time you have a "2 for 1 "coupon use it and take the goods to the Food Bank. I keep a plastic bin in my garage for canned or boxed items purchased just this way and about evgery 4-5 weeks I drop it off.

Every can of food makes a difference folks so please, skip that McDonald's burger as you leave Wal-Mart and donate.

A great suggestion and reminder that not everyone enjoys a prosperous holiday. Please also remember programs like Toys for Tots and Coats for Kids (for those of us in the frozen north) - the economy has taken a chunk out of their donations.

Also, remember that need doesn't have a season. I have taken some of our local teenagers to the local mission to serve meals and sort donations at other times of the year. The kids are always amazed at how much need there is (even when we're not celebrating a holiday). I see that many of the responses here indicate a year-round committment to helping those in need. Great job gang!

Even if you don't give to a food bank sometimes businesses collect for the needy too. I myself give food and my time to our local elks and we make baskets for the elderly adn we go and visit and pass them out and they love us. Many of them don't even get to see thier families during the holidays so we love watching thier smiles when we bring santa with us and pass them out.

At work we donate all the bottles we collect to a local adoption agency, we picked them because my boss's daughter adopted a wonderful little girl thru them and its our way of showing our appreciation for their good works. And no my boss didn't pick them, we did as an office, also because I refused to donate to a local food shelter run by a religous group that pushed their religion on others.

Don't let money stop you...time is all it takes. Take the time to call the local long term care facility and see if there is someone there you can go read to, write letters for, just visit...offer to watch a friend's kids so she can have time alone or go out with her sweetie...alone. Smile at everyone you see. Hold the door for someone when you are out in public. Wait for the shopping cart as someone loads their car and offer to take it all the way into the store. Step out of yourself and think of someone else. There are lots of opportunities out there if you look for them. Be part of the solution...not part of the problem.

I'll see what I can do...and I hate saying that, because I wouldn't mind, but I am the people (my family and I) that you guys are helping.

Well Saturday night I worked security for a Candy Coburn concert with a percentage of the proceeds going to put together care packages for deployed soldiers, and we've been gathering non perishables for hte local food bank. In the next couple weeks we'll get funds together to do the Angel tree for at least a couple familes! Just like every Christmas!! Just makes ya feel good!

I usually donate to the Salvation Army by buying toys for children and I adopt a child and an elderly person on the reservation every year. Some years I don't have a lot of money but it all seems to work out to where I can give at least a little something.

I gave money to one of those Salvation Army bell ringers yesterday and it felt good

My work does something every year for 2 families (both single mom families) a nd 2 elderly people (1 male and 1 female). My boss makes up a list of their ages, what sizes they wear, and what they like, so that everyone here in the office can donate something to them. I think that is wonderful. I have never worked any place before that has done that. We have a very big office here too.....about 45 people, so I'm sure these families will be able to get stuff they need.
