Fall has settled in, and the holidays are fast approaching; between all the cookie making and checking items off our gift list, a great way to positively impact another life and make a difference in the community is by volunteering. Whether donating your time at a soup kitchen, sponsoring a local family, helping deliver meals or giving non-perishable items to a local food pantry, there are a number of ways for your family to connect to the community. But the volunteering doesn’t have to be limited to the season of giving, below is a list of ways to give year-round.
