Gifts That Give Back

While it's easy to get wrapped up in the consumer-driven holiday season, it's important to take time to remember what the holidays are really all about; peace, love and good will towards others.

What better way to celebrate the spirit of the season than by giving a gift that gives back to those who need it most.

There are several ways to help others during the holidays, including donating time and money to well-known charities like the Salvation Army and Daily Bread food bank. Donations don't have to be large either; sometimes all it takes is a few dollars to make a difference in someone's life. Here are just a few examples of how you can help others (and check names off your list) this holiday season.
