Many stores and libraries this time of year have donation boxes to collect gifts for children. Some even have Christmas trees with places to hang mittens, warm hats, socks, and so forth. Those items will be distributed later to children who have no other way to get these needed items.
Christmas is the perfect time to think about giving something to others less fortunate than ourselves.
Now it’s your turn: If you were to put an item in a donation box or hang something on a tree for someone else, what would you give? If you have given in the past, write the story of your experience.
