Each year at this time of year we try to help provide a family a Thanksgiving meal along with help to provide Christmas for some children or a family in need. Over the years of my marriage, we have been in need a few times and were helped by others. One year, my 2 boys would have not had a Christmas if it wasn’t for the giving of others. I feel a great way to pay back those who have helped us is by passing it along and helping others. Giving to others is important year round, but the holidays provide the perfect opportunity to get you into the spirit of giving.
Have you heard of Hormel Foods’ “On Our Way to End Hunger” program? Through their program, they have commissioned surveys to uncover perceptions of hunger in America, hosted hunger summits that brought leaders from the public and private sectors together, and donated millions of dollars of products to local food banks and Feeding America.
Hormel would love to hear how you lend a helping hand during the holiday season. Get in touch with your giving side this season and share what you and your family do to give back. Whether you sit down and talk with your children about what it means to be charitable, volunteer at a soup kitchen, pack up a clothing or book donation, Hormel wants to see how your family embraces the spirit of giving back. Upload a photo or video to Hormel Foods Recipe page and Twitter by mentioning @HormelFoods and #HormelFamily.
You can also give back by leaving a comment on this post. Leave a comment telling me how you embrace your charitable side during the holiday and Hormel will make a donation to the food bank of one lucky winner’s community, just in time for the holidays. You have until Nov 30 at midnight (MST) to enter.
This year I am having each of my kiddos pick an Angel from off the tree of our local Angel Tree program. Then we are going to go shopping as a family to pick out items for each of their angels. I really want my kids to be involved in the whole process.
