Learning Center Experience
During the month of December several
holidays are celebrated including Christmas, Kwanzaa, or Hanukkah. The holidays can be a good time for giving or spending
time with family. Many people find
December to be a great opportunity to help others enjoy the holidays and
who may be struggling through difficult times.
In celebration of the holiday season
the Center for Public Service is featuring an article about helping those in
need, stories on students that are making a difference in the lives of families,
and organizations that support children in need and charities.
If you are interested in giving back
this holiday season, the center has also listed various events
around the United States that may offer volunteer opportunities.

In early November the awareness of the poor and needy moves from the back of most minds to a central focus during what is commonly referred to as the Season of Giving.
Jessica Anker has always loved to help others. As a high school student, she started volunteering her time to people in need, and for nearly 10 years she has been helping put together food baskets for the hungry around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Human services graduate Tabatha Tasker is the founder of Operation Santa 2012 in her West Virginia town of Terra Alta. All year long she has been collecting donations to help provide Christmas gifts and household goods to children and families in need.
During the holiday season, people all over the United States look for ways to give back to their community or donate to a favorite charity. Several charities partner with workplaces to offer employees an opportunity to make a pledge. One campaign that has been highly effective in helping charities raise workplace donations is the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program collects new, unwrapped toys during the 3 months before Christmas, distributing them to less fortunate children in communities throughout our nation. This high-profile charity began 65 years ago when Major Bill Hendricks and a group of U.S. Marine Reservists collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children in Los Angeles.
During the holidays, charities
can be found helping people in need enjoy a warm holiday dinner or bringing joy
to the life of a child or family through donated gifts. Charities and other
nonprofit organizations are able to help others and the community in part due
to extensive fundraising efforts—not just for the holidays but also for many
causes, from health awareness to education.
