Volunteer This Holiday Season

'Tis the season for gift giving...why not give a little more this year. Donate your time, a monetary gift, or another useful item to a needy foundation. With wallets tighter than ever, our worthy non-profits are needing some extra hands and help.

A mom contacted the store last week because her daughter wanted to support CHKD. She had made those fun bird feeders from pine cones, peanut butter, and seeds and asked me to sell them in the store. Of course, I did. What a great idea to get kids involved and donate a little much needed cash-ola.

Or, just donate your time. Check out www.volunteerhr.org to see a schedule of events for local charities or maybe check with some of the local groups you work with or have admired in the past. I'm sure they could use a helping hand.
