The holidays are coming and its the time of year where it is better to give than receive. So lets all find time give back over the holidays whether its money or out time. Remember whatever you give we get back 10 times.

If I stay in town its always a great feeling to serve at a mission, and if thats not possible I like to make a donation to a food pantry. If you do your homework some even have donors who match what you give. Nobody should ever go hungry especially during the holidays
