The holidays are fast approaching and we are entering the season to give. The time to think of others – those we know and love and those in need that we have never met.. Of course anytime is a time to give, but we always feel alittle more inclined to give back just a little bit more during the holidays because it’s a time of family and friends, and we want to help those who are without.
Now, more than ever with the impact that Hurricane Sandy has had on the NY/NJ area we are all looking for ways to help. You can buy local products and dine out to support local businesses if you are the NY/NJ area, and you can also visit these websites to find more ways to help:
- American Red Cross – http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations
- Staten Island Recovers – https://statenisland.recovers.org/
- The Lower Eastside Recovers – https://lowereastside.recovers.org/
