    I have adopted a family in my community to feed for christmas.
    All you need to do is call any church and they will have a list of the folks in need.
    You can either buy food for them or bring them to your home for dinner.
    Since I see so many forums on religeon,I say put forth a little love for the family's in need instead of arguing about who has the best religion or beliefs.
    Merry Christmas

    We adopt a family at Christmas to provide food and gifts for. But we bring groceries (and produce when we have a garden) weekly to the church food pantry. It is good to help a family over the holidays, but that is a long time in between. Holly

    We have a neice who has four kids and really struggles so we help finance their Christmas. I love her kids. I just wished they were closer so I could do more.

        I remember as a child my mother would ask if I wanted to give clothes that I did not want to victims in Venezuela for earthquakes, it made me feel really good to help.

      You can , I have when I could , before my in laws went down and kinda took me with em , I helped a lady by giving her a donation through her pay pal account , you just need to be carefull though that they are who they say they are and really truly could use some help - I used to donate to food boxes , now I knida have to go get them sometimes - thank God I'll be back to work next month this past year has been ridiculous.

    I sponsored a little boy from the volunteer center at school. I got him some cute toys and clothes.

    Then my family always sponsors another family at the center for migrant worker's families. Then we bring gifts to the center and help them decorate the tree.

    well since your daughter is being such a little Christmas angel i wanted to send her (and you) something.

    you know, when i was a kid, we were dirt poor. i mean, really bad off. but, like your daughter, i saw some people who had it worse than we did, so i knew it could be a lot worse than it was. one time our school had a food drive and we had to wrap food to give to poor people and all we had to give was a can of beans. you were supposed to wrap it in gift wrap and ribbons and of course we couldn't afford that, so my mom wrapped it in newspaper. i was ashamed to take that to school, but i did and slipped it into the box when no one was looking. when we got out own food box, that can was in there smile yikes

    anyway i didn't mean to put you on the spot. just wishing you a Merry Christmas.

      You havent put me on the spot , in case you haven't noticed from my hubbs and forum postings I'm a pretty much tell it like it is person , yeah , so I'm having a tough Christmas this year , but I have also had some really good ones , and more like being on the giving end , this year since we cant give much my daughter wanted to find one needy child and buy them a prestnt I think it shows alot of character on her part.  I love the story of the can that came back in your own box  I'm going to copy and paste it in a document so I dont lose it if you dont mind smile
