Donate to your local food banks or coat and toy drives this season. News outlets have reported that donations to coat and toy drives are down this year. And yes, while going out to buy a toy in a store may not be accessible this year for some, you can order online! Try to shop small, yes it is very easy to order from Amazon but if you can- the small, local stores need your help this season! Your local restaurants also need help- a great gift for a friend or family member close by is a gift card to that restaurant you love!
