Brown Santa is a great way to give back.
Travis County Brown Santa is in its 35th year of providing assistance to underprivileged children and their families in Travis County and senior residents of local retirement centers in Travis County. If you are able to see this post, then you are able to volunteer some of your time. For some, the holidays are the best time of the year. Christmas movies, Christmas songs, and Christmas decorations everywhere. For those less fortunate, this time of year can be very depressing. I am fortunate enough to love this time of year, but that hasn't always been the case. I have had years where we couldn't afford a tree let alone presents. It is sad to see how many families feel that each year across our country. You can make a difference. Even if you can't make a monetary donation, you can donate your time. There are families out there that will have a whole new outlook on the holidays if you donate just a little time. If you have never volunteered for something like this, you must do it. The feeling you get from helping others is inexplicable. I have been on both sides. Check out the Brown Santa volunteer page for more information.
