In these tough economic times there is always a need for extra food. To this end there are many charities that collect canned food such as vegetables and soups to hand out to the poor. Drinks like water and soda are also welcome and, in some cases, even perishable items like bread and fruit are wanted.

Clothing is also highly desired among charity organizations. Donating old shirts and pants can prove extremely beneficial to someone in need. Donating warmth-giving clothing and fabrics like jackets and blankets is especially welcome during the cold winter months that that holidays fall within.

Sadly, poverty affects many child as well as adults. Hence, giving items like toys is an excellent way to provide charities with the means to make the holidays extra special for poor children. Simple toys like coloring books, building blocks, and dolls can be enormously successful charitable offerings.

No matter what way you give to charity it is important to remember the needy; especially at this time of year and in this still-stalled economy. Giving to charity along with your children helps teach young people to appreciate what they have while instilling compassion for those who are less fortunate and these are some of the most important lessons a person can learn.
