We are now entering the holiday season, which usually means lots of spending! Whether it’s on gifts or foods for the festivities, people are starting to stock up before the stores get out of control. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people this year who will not have the resources needed to buy their families food or holiday gifts this season. So, feed the spirit of giving and donate turkey or any other holiday food to families in need!
Aside from holiday food, there are other donations that charities could do with this holiday season, so please check out our blog on Donations Charities Need During the Holidays to learn about giving more!
Before you donate your turkey or other holiday food, please consider the following tips:
1. Make sure the turkey is frozen and fresh.
2. Try to donate non-perishable food items.
