3 Ways To Donate Locally This Holiday Season

If you feel that your cup is full and are looking to give back this holiday season, there are many opportunities throughout Simcoe County and the surrounding Georgian Bay area that allow you to donate to local families who are in need. A child may be able to open a gift that they otherwise wouldn’t have received on Christmas morning, or a family may be able to have the Christmas dinner they dream of providing for their household. Whether you are able to make a monetary donation, a food/toy donation or an act of kindness for a family or an individual your good deed will touch the hearts of many during the holidays.
