Thanks for giving ... add some charity to your festivity

Family | Holidays | Party Planning
By Gatherings Gal November 26, 2013

As you and yours gather to give thanks and enjoy the fruits of your labors in 2013, consider carving out some time to add a little charity to your festivity.

Simple projects to help others can help your family make an impact and make memories. You may even start a new family tradition!

Consider these simple ideas:

- Organize a mini clothing drive by asking guests to bring along gently used winter coats, hats and gloves for donation to a local shelter.

- Round up the family for an after-the-big-meal walk that includes picking up litter in a local park or along your street.

-  Provide guests inexpensive greeting cards and take a few moments to write notes of thanks and holiday greetings to those at an area veterans' hospital or to active servicemen and women. Find tips for sending cards to troops here.
