Thanksgiving is that time of the year when we give back to family and friends, and have the biggest meal of the year to celebrate what we are grateful for. Unfortunately, that is not the case for those facing homelessness.
When asked to help a particular cause, our minds often jump to the idea of giving monetary donations. For many, this notion may make assisting a cause unappealing or impossible due to financial circumstances. Contrary to popular belief, donating is only one of the many ways that we can aid a relief effort. For example, free ways to relieve the homelessness crisis may not be evident initially but are nonetheless abundant and accessible to most individuals.
