Local Holiday Meals and Volunteering

If you found this post, you are like me. You are searching for local charities who are serving holiday meals and you want to offer an extra helping hand. In many cases, most volunteer slots for “the day of” events such as Thanksgiving are filled. However, charities are still accepting donations, looking for assistance throughout the holiday season and are in continuous need for administrative volunteers.
