This is the time of the year when we are encouraged to connect with family and friends, to show them how much we care by our actions, simple or extravagant. The holidays bring an air of festiveness and generosity with them. Giving gifts to others is possibly one of the most rewarding feelings there is. In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays it can be hard to loose sight of what’s really important, appreciating those around you. One way you can do this is by donating to your local food pantry or community center. Here in Durham, we have a great campus ministry known as The Waysmeet Center. The Cornucopia Food Pantry associated with Waysmeet is made of a group of student volunteers working together to feed 6,000 people a year, not including their food basket giveaways. Giving back to the community is a great way to celebrate our town, not only on the holidays, but also all year round! If you would like to donate to the Cornucopia Food Pantry, visit their webpage. Donations are welcome year around! Give back to your community this season, and see all of the happiness you spread!
