The holiday season has always been a time when the community comes together to help every household feel loved and joyful through generous giving. This past year has been more challenging than most, either through financial strain or being unable to spend time with loved ones, which should give us all the more reason to find a place where we can offer a helping hand.

One of the ways you can be a part of helping the community is by supporting Toys for Tots, which collects new unwrapped toys and distributes them to less-fortunate children. You can support either by purchasing a toy and donating it at a local toy drop location, shopping for a toy to donate via the Toys for Tots website, or donating money online.

You can also help by supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation which not only helps children throughout the year, but also partners with companies to raise money specifically during the holiday season. You can help raise money for Make-A-Wish by browsing the list of current promotions and when you use the link to shop, the partnered company will donate to Make-A-Wish when you make a purchase.

The Salvation Army has partnered with Walmart to #RescueChristmas through the Angel Tree program, which helps over 2.6 million children in need. Local Walmart’s have Christmas trees with wishlists for specific children and you are able to pick a tag, shop for gifts, and drop the gifts for the Salvation Army to distribute.

Other great ways to give include donating gently used toys to local social services, children’s homes, women’s shelters, and even hospital’s pediatric wards.

Whichever way you choose to help your community this season we hope that you know how grateful we are to be a part of this wonderful community here at HighPoint apartments and we hope you all have a happy holidays.
