Want to Give Back this Holiday Season?

Happy holidays from Pigtails & Crewcuts! We’re counting our blessings this holiday season and hope that you are too. At the same time, we know that not everyone is quite so lucky, and a lot of people need help over the holidays. Here are some simple ideas to consider if you want to make a difference in your own community.

Volunteer at an organization that needs help.

Donate food, money or clothing to a local non-profit.

Learn about opportunities for reading, tutoring and mentoring in your community.

Shovel a neighbor’s walk.

Foster or adopt a dog or cat in need.

Walk dogs at a local animal shelter.

Cook a meal for a family or organization in need

Inquire about opportunities to help out at a local nursing home.

Adopt a family and brighten their holiday with food and gifts.

Write a letter or send a package to a soldier.

Buy a stranger’s coffee or meal.

Throw a holiday giving party and request donations, rather than hostess gifts, to share with a local charity.

Buy local and keep your cash where it’s needed most—your own community.

Make a commitment to continue giving back throughout the year.
