Favorite thing: Holiday Volunteer Opportunities in the Lehigh Valley

Want to do good in the Lehigh Valley in the next two weeks? ValleyWide Help and The Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley have pages dedicated to holiday volunteer opportunities, and The Morning Call's "Be an Angel Campaign" continues through the end of the year.

If you're stressed out this holiday season because you have so much shopping and preparing to do, think of those who won't be shopping at all... and maybe give something to them instead, honoring your loved ones. Or instead of making a fancy dinner, volunteer together with your friends and family.

If you don't think you're the "volunteering type," there are lots of ways to help the local agencies that don't require you to meet the people you're supporting. If you don't have money to give, your time can be just as valuable to the agencies that serve our neighbors.

Does your family have a holiday tradition that includes donating money or volunteering? Please share your comments and suggestions for others.
