    HOLIDAY TRADITIONS
Volunteer
for the
holidays
We all know it’s better to give than to receive, and that saying doesn’t always have to pertain to
presents. Your time can be a valuable commodity for community-based organizations this holiday
season, as they attempt to feed, shelter and care for the less fortunate.
Soup Kitchens & Food Bank
Many organizations work hard every year to make sure the homeless and underprivileged receive a nice, hot
meal for Christmas. You can help by volunteering your time to cook, serve food and clean up.
Groups also offer food services for the homebound, requiring volunteers to deliver meals across town. It is easy
to get on a delivery schedule by simply contacting these organizations and offering your time.
Nursing Homes and Assisted Living
The elderly who are no longer fit to stay in their homes because of health concerns or rehabilitation processes is
a group that can use holiday spirit this Christmas. And many nursing homes and assisted living centers coordinate
numerous events and trips based around the special season.
Nursing homes may also need help with donations, meal serving or other activities, so check in about a month
before Christmas to see how you can help.
Merry
Christmas
to all of
Wallowa County!
Keep warm all winter
with Propane.
