During the holidays do you donate to the Marines Toys for Tots Toy Drive or any other charitable organization?

Yes, we have the boys pick out a few toys and drop them off at toys for tots.

Yes, we have in the past. In recent years, most of our charity/volunteer work has been with the animal shelter.

We did this year. Usually we donate to Meals on Wheels but my son(almost 4) had a severe case of the gimmes and was driving me nutty about his presents under the tree and Santa. The local fire department was collecting toys outside our grocery store and I took full advantage. I had my son pick out a toy specifically to give to the firefighters and we talked about how other children wouldn't be getting presents from their family because they didn't have extra money for toys and fun stuff like that. I told him the firefighters were helping make sure every child had at least one gift for Christmas so they wouldn't be sad. It really helped him a lot. He picked out a great gift and gave it gladly to the fire fighter telling him it was for a little boy who wasn't getting any presents. I was proud of him but I was even more proud that after that the gimmes and greediness stopped.

Yes, I donate.  I helped organized an Angel Tree at a local church for Catholic Charities for families in need in my area.  And for my church, I delivered toys and food to a family in need.
