It's almost the Holiday Season, how will you give back?

We've been big on giving back this year, more so than usual.
Last year, helped promote a friend who adopted a family in need.
This year, we give to our Local Food Bank (F.E.A.S.T.) through our community Outreach Program (Palm Harbor Local Community Outreach).

We have contemplated adopting a local family, or making some stuffed stockings at Christmas to give to F.E.A.S.T.
We are trying to teach our children, that in this world of instant everything, some others, do not have the privileges, or even necessities, that we do. 

With Cub Scouts (and Boy Scouts of America), November is Scouting for Food. We pick up bags of food that the Boy Scouts had previously left out, and deliver it to a Food Bank. The boys who participated (and yes we did), really enjoyed this activity.

Do you give food, or contribute to a local charity? Would you enter a giveaway that gave to a charity in your area? Do you involve your child?
