As we get closer to Christmas, I feel like it is important to talk about giving back. Here at Leonard’s we are big into the season of giving! We started off by doing a canned food drive in November which we donated to a local shelter here in St Augustine that had been affected by Hurricane Matthew. We were the headline sponsor of the Reindeer Run which benefits the Boys & Girls Club and we had a team of over 20 actually participate in the run! Right now we are having a toy drive and I personally plan to go to the Boys & Girls Club when they allow volunteers to come in and help wrap gifts for the kids next week!
It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate, or if you celebrate at all. What matters is that this is a time of year where we all tend to indulge one way or another and it is important to remember not everyone is as fortunate.
Big or small, anything helps. If you can’t make monetary donations or go out and buy food and gifts, you can volunteer your time. A lot of shelters and non profits just need an extra set of hands around this time of the year.
I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season!
