The holiday season has arrived and, for many, that means shopping. Stores are festively lit as shoppers hunt high and low for the perfect presents. But if you’re worried about finding exactly the right gift for everyone on your list, you can take a relaxing sip of hot cocoa and remember that the best gifts are the ones given from the heart.
Whether the recipient is someone who seems to have everything, you’re trying to move towards more environmentally-friendly gifting, or you simply want to spread joy even further than the people in your circle, there are many reasons to look at giving to a charity this Christmas.
A staggering number of worthy causes in the Lower Mainland operate on a shoestring budget. But by giving to organizations within the Tri-Cities area, not only do you strengthen the bonds of our local community; you can also bolster the global community. Your gift can help provide meaningful support to many people who need championing this year.
But how can you find a cause that you or your loved ones find especially important to you? The Tri-City News has curated this Season of Giving list to help direct visibility to some impactful local charities. There’s a whole range of meaningful organizations that need assistance right now – from youth and family services to mental and physical health, each is an opportunity to share your support this season.
So instead of Christmas shopping until you drop, consider making a donation in someone’s name to a charity that means something to them. Discover these Season of Giving causes this holiday.
