‘Tis the season to be thankful! This holiday season families and friends come together to embrace each other over a home cooked or catered meal, catch up conversation and will give and receive gifts, as part of most holiday traditions. While some are carving turkeys or unraveling the bows from their presents, others are hard at work donating their time and efforts to local nonprofits during this holiday season. Encourage your friends and family to think outside the gift box and start a new tradition of giving or donating directly to the organizations that support so many people in the community year-round! Explore 12 nonprofits in metro Detroit that could use an array of offerings this time of year (and beyond).
