Our church has a "giving tree" that was set up before Christmas. It includes options for buying gifts for local children on a list supplied by the schools. This year I wasn't up for shopping, so instead, I chose to donate cash for the shut-in gifts. They include a tin of cookies and a box of candy among things like a devotional calendar, body lotion, etc. When I delivered a package to a shut in a few of years ago, she said she appreciate the cookies and candy so she would have something to offer guests who stop in. That is an idea to keep in mind.

I have a discount card from our community chamber of commerce. It gives us a percent off in a number of local restaurants. But the part that made it more than worth it, I can use it at the local Walgreen Pharm & it gives me big discounts on Walgreen OTC items, a smaller discount on other items, including their small supply of grocery items. I am hoping the Chamber will do this again, as I would like to buy one for a friend who lives on the financial fringe. I will let you know if I am able to do this. Just today I spent about $19 on over $30 worth of merchandise, including toilet paper, Christmas cards, & supplements.

Easy to do, as our church has boxes at the entrances to
donate to the food bank. So everytime you go so
easy to drop off soup, soap or whatever you have..
Most food banks will take everything..please check
dates on the items tho.

For the past several years, I have done a food drive in our community for the local food bank. I usually manage to pretty much fill up our spare bedroom with food which is pretty awesome.

For December Challenge Tell everyone what is your special Christmas thing is to do..

Also, During the Holidays we are all about giving and helping others. So, why not continue it all year all. And continue the spirit of the Holidays. By helping someone i.e. open a door or give someone help in their yard.


Happy Holidays Everyone.
