Unfortunately there are some people who are still struggling and trying to get back on their feet. There are a lot of families in need of some extra help during this holiday season. Here are a few ways people can help by giving back.

Once again Walgreens is partnering with the U.S. Marines to provide Toys for Tots.

Through December 16th your local Walgrees will have a barrel in the store where you can donate toys. If you check you weekly ads they also have great deals on toys. Just think people can shop for themselves while at the same time doing a good deed for children who will definitely appreciate their efforts.

Another way people can give back is to check their local food banks to find out where they can drop off can goods and other items needed to help local families in their area. Your contribution will most definitely go a long way.

If individuals have a little extra cash they can do some research on local charities and donate money. There are many local and nationally know organizations like the Red Cross who will gladly accept a donation. Depending on what a person would like to do there is definitely a need.

Giving back this holiday season will definitely be a gift that keeps on giving.
