With a failing economy and tons of job losses, this holiday season will be a tight one for all of us. However, it seems that the non-profit business sectors and the people who take advantage of their services, may be the ones who have been hit the worse. Therefore, this holiday season, those of us who still have jobs, homes and presents under our trees, need to think more about the less fortunate in our communities (and maybe less about what size flat screen TV we want to buy for our own family!) Here is a list of social service non-profit organizations in Chittenden County, VT that my husband, Mike Simoneau, and I have donated to in 2008. They are happy to take donations of any size and sometimes nature, so please visit their websites for information. And if money is too tight for you this year, then volunteering is always a good way to go as well!
