Or, alternatively, I want to give some other people some stuff!
If that sounds like you, check out these opportunities below! I know a lot of you already donate time, talents, money, etc, but if you're looking for new ways to give, check out these! I'll post more as I find out through December.
Inglis House is a home for those who are wheelchair bound. They do there best to help all residents reach a level of independence that they want. I've seen people who can only move their heads navigate computers with ease using adaptive equipment. I've learned to weave alongside residents. I've listened to stories residents have written. It's an incredible place.
Inglis is looking for people to donate items for their holiday gifts which they evaluate and then personalize for each resident. The list is kind of long, so check out the bottom of this page for the list!
If you wonder where food banks get there stuff, look no further than Philabundance, a food bank serving 9 counties in southeaster PA and New Jersey. They do some great work, but they need help getting Thanksgiving meals to people!

It's getting down to the wire on this one, but if you've got cash and you want a MANNA Pie (it helps feed a family!) make sure you get down there soon!

That's right, CSM fundraises as well. If you'd like to donate to CSM, click HERE for my personal fundraising page. I'll have a new goal set next year, but it's not too early to get a head start on it!
Thanks to everyone for checking out this info, and for considering helping out!
Have a great Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays all year.
