Day 10: Food for Thought

Random Acts of Christmas, Day 10

Perhaps one of the more obvious needs around the holidays is donations to local food banks. There is a collection site near our house, so for all of December, we have been gathering non-perishable food items. Just picking up a couple extra things when we grocery shop and cleaning out the pantry for items we might not use or that we can do without. The impact of doing it over a the period of a month was really great! Being so spread out, it wasn't a noticeable monetary contribution on our part, and we now have a large hamper of items to take and donate to families in need.
