3 Ways to Give Back During the Holidays
When you share small acts of kindness, you are giving back more than you might think. Spreading the holiday cheer to the ones that don't have enough will elevate your mood and others. This will cause a ripple effect and you will inspire others to do the same! Here are some ways you can give back in Hawaii:
The Hawaii Salvation Army
Give back to the Hawaii families through the Angel Tree program by The Hawaii Salvation Army. The Angel Tree Program allows us to put gifts under the tree's of the others by getting the gifts of paper angels off the trees inside several banks, credit unions, and shopping malls. Each angel represents a child or adult in our community that is in need. You have the opportunity to make this Holiday special!
