5 Ways to Give Back During the Holidays

The holiday season is the perfect time to share what you have with others. Make your community a brighter place by joining Hickory Farms and giving back during the holidays in these five ways.

Donate your household items

Items that you no longer use can be a welcome addition to another home. Donating your items to charitable organizations helps you recycle your goods, while the funds that are raised through their purchase go toward programs to help low income families, such as job training and resume preparation.

Volunteer your time

Make a day of service an annual part of your holiday celebration. Gather your family together and read about the various philanthropic charities working in your area. Then, decide how you can best give back. Whether you would like to serve food at a homeless shelter or organize baskets of toys for children in need, volunteering with your kids can teach them important life lessons.

Drop off a gift

Expand your holiday gift list to include a few people that you don't know. Stop by a local hospital ward or a retirement home with a festive gift basket to share delicious treats and a few laughs. You are sure to make someone's holiday season a little more special and come home with a few new friends.

Cook a feast for the hungry

Family dinners are an important part of any celebration. Share the joy of a great meal with less fortunate individuals in your region by packaging up holiday meals and handing them out to the homeless.
