No matter what, the tradition of giving during this time of year is not lost. The gift of giving has the power to stretch further than just one simple act; it can truly help to shape lives. This year, we encourage you to find a way to help those in need in one way or another.
Keep in mind too that if volunteering is not an option for you this year, these organizations and others across Central Ohio can always benefit from donations and those helping raise awareness of their causes. You can also always check with your local town or city to find out where there is a need in your specific community.
