Talking Turkey: How to Work Charitable Giving into the Holidays

Published Wednesday, December 07, 2011 7:46 PM

Chances are your Thanksgiving table was groaning with goodies, leaving plenty of leftovers to tide you over for the weekend. For countless of Americans who rely on food banks for their meals, turkeys were in short supply this year. Donations to food banks have been drying up, even as demand for their services increases.

This holiday season, as you count your many blessings, you may wish to share your good fortune with your fellow Americans who are down on their luck. We've rounded up a selection of national organizations that match volunteers to organizations in need.

Winston Churchill once said, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." This holiday season make it a "wonderful life," by extending yourself to others.

VolunteerMatch: National non-profit that connects "good people and good causes." Volunteers can search by location, interest or ability; the organization serves both volunteers, organizations and corporate participants.

HandsOn Network:  The largest volunteer network in the nation; HandsOn includes a powerful network of more than 70,000 corporate, faith and nonprofit organizations. Annually, the network delivers approximately 30 million hours of volunteer service.  

Feeding America:  Non-profit leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Helps feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks.

Do you have a favorite charity you support at the holidays? How do you work volunteering into your holiday calendar? Share your thoughts here and on the Pendaflex Facebook page.

I was just searching for this irmtnfaoion for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what's the Google's issue that does not rank this type of informative sites closer to the top. Normally the top websites are full of garbage.
