It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is upon us once again, and if you are looking to spread your holiday cheer, we have a list of opportunities for you to give back this year.
More Than A Meal
An organization that is dedicated to helping those in need from Oxford, Mississippi. Every week they provide a nutritious meal, but they do not stop there! They also work in collaboration with local organizations to provide information or services including eye screenings, health checks, simple financial planning, and so much more. You can sign up for your church group or organization to provide a meal. You can also donate the items listed on their website. Another great way to give back and support the community is by sponsoring a toiletry drive. More Than A Meal would provide you with a list of current supplies they need at the time of the drive! Visit More Than A Meal online for more information at mtamoxford.org.
Looking to help support other local families this holiday? Oxford Charger Christmas is a great way for you to get involved. Operating similarly to adopting an angel at church, you can become a donor to a local family or local families. You will be given all information that you need regarding the family you will be donating to. They are also in need of businesses to sponsor items that they will need to operate. Request to join the Oxford Charger Christmas Kids Facebook Group to get involved.
Toys For Tots
This charity is one that has been around for 75 years. When you donate to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation you are giving less fortunate kids hope – and a reason to believe in their future. This charity has many ways of getting involved such as by donating online, crowdfunding, donating in memory or in honor, being a Toy Drop Site, and so much more. Visit Toys For Tots online for more information.
