Compassionate act: Helping the Needy during holidays

I plan to volunteer with an organization that helps the less-fortunate in my immediate area this weekend.

go to http://santarosacares.org and see what this fantastic organization is all about.

I try to volunteer at one or both of their distribution days each year. this weekend is the distribution for the Thanksgiving  baskets. Needy families recieve food & vouchers for clothing & other necessities  which are donated to area thrift stores.  Sunday is the day that the clients get their packages. The packages are packed according to how many adults, children & senior citizens are in each household. In order to protect the clients’ dignity, boxes are identified by numbers instead of names.

Clients must show proof of residency in  my county as well as need based on total household income.

This is the only charity of its kind that services needy people in my immediate area.
