While the holidays are usually full of parties, fun, and gifts, it is also a time to give to others. Here are three things to do over the holiday break to get on Santa’s nice list:

 

1. Donate gifts to Toys for Tots

 

Toys for Tots is run by the U.S. marine corps and every year they collect new unwrapped    gifts to hand out to needy kids. There are many drop off locations throughout the city. If you do not have an extra gift, you can also make a donation online at toysfortots.org.

 

2. Volunteer at food on foot

 

Food on Foot is an organization in Hollywood that serves the homeless. For a donation of 25 dollars, people can go serve food to a group of homeless people who have cleaned up Hollywood under the supervision of the organization leaders. After the service, they tell their personal stories about their background and progress towards finding work and housing.

 

3. Visit LA Works Website

 

You can visit www.laworks.com and view their list of community service that you can volunteer for. There is a variety of ways to help out listed on the website.
