Advent: Day 12

Charitable/Volunteer Work

Did your family ever volunteer with a charity such as a soup kitchen, homeless or battered women’s shelter during the holidays? Or perhaps were your ancestors involved with church groups that assisted others during the holiday?

 

I am, unfortunately, unaware of any charitable work that my ancestors might have done at Christmas time; however, my mother did put great emphasis on volunteering when I was growing up and I have claimed that importance as my own now that I’m an adult. We never did anything specifically for Christmas, but made sure to give of our time all year ’round.
