Visit a Nursing Home
Many elderly people will be missing their families during the holiday season. Call your local nursing home to find out how you can schedule a visit with your family to give back this holiday season. You can spend time reading a book or holding conversations with the elderly to give them companionship.

Volunteer Your Time
Call around the local shelters to find out if the shelters need any assistance during the holiday season. You can volunteer together as a family during the holiday season to give back to those less fortunate. Many shelters have a higher workload this time of year, so it’s quite helpful to volunteer.
