In this time of year when we celebrate holidays, family, and the spirit of giving, I would urge you to consider giving to someone in need.
In particular, if you have the time or money, consider giving to a food pantry. You can donate to your favorite local charity, or give to a larger organization. I personally recommend the following charities:
Feeding America’s “mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.”
“The Hunger Site provides simple, effective, feel-good ways to address an urgent, specific humanitarian need: the eradication of world hunger.”
These have been my charities of choice for years and I highly recommend the work that they do to help those in need.
