A Time to Give

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and fun. Most importantly they are a time to give to others. I had the opportunity to do just that yesterday December 18, at the Salvation Army Distribution Center. With the help of HandsOn, the Salvation Army recruited volunteers to help sort and distribute food and toys to needy families. Volunteers helped in many ways including loading up food boxes and turkeys into carts, finding toy bags for the families, and helping them get everything to their cars. It was a great time to celebrate what the holidays are all about. The families were very appreciative of everyone that was helping out and giving their time. I had the opportunity to talk to them as I was helping them cart everything to their car and they were all in high spirits, regardless of their circumstance. Overall, it was a great time and I had a lot of fun!
