  • I make gift baskets for thanksgiving and christmas and then just make dinner for random families to give the moms out there just a night where they don't have to worry about making dinner for a night!

  • We adopted a family not too long ago that was in between jobs. Dad had just gotten a new job, and they needed help to tie them over until his first paycheck came. We have a tradition in our family that for your birthday, in addition to gifts, you get some money to do something good for someone else/donate. So that's what we did with my hubby's. We contribute to canned food drives, and take stuff to the food bank sometimes.

  • We have a box in our kitchen were we put cans and whatnot to go to charity all year long. Then as we hear of people in need or have the chance to get it to a shelter or something we give it away... I see no reason in donating around the holidays though, seeing that's the only time the shelters tend to have a surplus... I prefer to wait til the majority of people are not giving, since that's when more people are in need.

  • Yes. We do and right now my sons school is having their fall food drive...its for a month, so every other day I send in a few canned goods, boxed mashed potatoes, Lipton noodles in the packages, those side dish noodles.
