This holiday season, there is so much to be grateful for. Let us express this gratitude directly to our communities that need it the most, while also educating the teens in our lives about the importance of giving back.

Here is a great resource by Fidelity Charitable on three distinct ways to help those directly affected by COVID-19. Whether you’re helping to support medical needs, protect vulnerable communities, or sustain nonprofits, any support to those who are being directly affected by the pandemic will make a difference in someone’s holiday season.

To find local food banks in your area, you can also use the Feeding America Local Food Bank Finder to locate the nearest place to donate food that will directly benefit food insecure individuals in your area.
