We donate to fundraisers around us. Usually military related because we live in a military community. I donate time and food for things our FRG does for the soldiers and our community.

I do a lot with relay for life, I've helped plan events as well as given money and donated items for auctions or bake sales. I've also worked with the special Olympics and donated money to them. I also donate to several other charities.

I'm also a volunteer and backup coordinator for Bountiful Baskets. They are a fruit/veggie co-op that provides affordable fresh fruits and veggies.

We donate to fundraisers in our area whenever one is going on. We donate to food banks. And we donate whenever their is a disaster and people need help.

ETA: The reason why is because they are for a good cause and you should always help if you able to.

Wounded Warrior Project.

Saint Judes

Shriners

ETA: Food to the local food bank :)

We donate to all three.... I would rather donate and help and never need their services than to need them and have never given a dime.

Locally I donate to the Regional Food Bank.
