Make Meaningful Christmas Memories

12-21 give

Christmas is a special time of year that families come together and celebrate. While candy and presents can often cloud the vision of children, it is important to teach them the true Reason for the Season. We wanted to share a few ideas that bring everyone together and create some powerful memories while helping others.

  • Make cookies and pass them out to neighbors
  • Volunteer as a family at a local food pantry or soup kitchen
  • Carol for residents in senior centers
  • Write letters to soldiers overseas
  • Shovel your neighbor’s driveway
  • Ring bells for the Salvation Army
  • Grab a name off the Angel/Giving tree and purchase gifts as a family
  • Make birdfeeders out of pine cones and peanut butter
  • Make fleece tie blankets and donate to a homeless shelter
