With the upcoming holiday season approaching, I am reminded that last year John and I decided that we would no longer buy gifts for adults, but instead donate in their names to legitimate charities and places of need.
This year, I've started with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. Not only can you send money digitally, but you can participate in a virtual food drive. By going here, you can purchase exactly what the foodbank needs at that time. It's a great way to give.
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is part of the larger effort, America's Second Harvest. At a time when we American's typically gorge ourselves on huge amounts of food, shouldn't we be giving a thought (and a dollar or two) to those who go hungry?
