8. Deliver meals to people who are homebound

Most of us know people who are no longer able to get out or are elderly and unable to make their own meals. Bringing a homebound person a home-cooked meal is a treat they would remember forever. If you don’t know anyone yourself, ask around or call some of the local churches in your area.

 

9. Invite someone who is alone to Christmas dinner

You may be surprised to find someone you know is unexpectedly going to be alone over the holidays. Circumstances change quickly, and you never know who’s plans have changed and relatives are no longer able to visit. Offer an invite to someone who would otherwise be alone.

 

10. Offer to babysit for a young couple who need a date night

One of the best gifts you could give new parents is an offer to babysit for them so they can go shopping, finish their to-do list, or just have a much-needed night out.

 

11. Check with local churches for families in need

You may be able to deliver some groceries to families who don’t have the means to put food on their table. Give a call to the churches in your area – they’ll be in touch with those in need and would welcome a giving hand.

12. Contact the area news stations for families who may be in need

It seems that every year at this time, there is a family that has suffered a devastating loss. With the cold winter weather and faulty heaters, there are so many families who lose everything in a fire right before Christmas. Get in touch with your local news station and see who could use a little help, and you can give them exactly what they need.
