With Diwali behind us and Thanksgiving only a week away, it's safe to say that the holiday season is in full swing! Of course, our seasonal celebrations will look a lot different this year as many families are struggling to make ends meet. And with recent spikes in COVID-19 all across the country, it will be tough to carry on the traditions we're used to, such as gathering for family dinners and participating in turkey trots.

Thankfully, there are a lot of ways to spread holiday cheer this year—from a safe distance, of course.

The need for volunteers continues to be at an all-time high. From distributing turkeys and other essentials at a food pantry, to raking leaves during a park cleanup, to donating to a coat drive for children, there's no shortage of opportunities for locals who want to do some good this year. Find them all at our annual Holiday Volunteering page at, and help spread the holiday joy this season!
