HOLIDAY tips & resources
Special Edition | Nov/Dec 2020
While we will all have to continue to be creative in how and where we gather with family and friends, observe holiday traditions, and participate in the season, we can still make this year meaningful and special.
EMBRACE THE SPIRIT OF SERVICE
This has been a challenging year for many - job loss, food insecurity, seniors feeling especially isolated. In this season of giving, find ways to make a difference in your community...
Start a Food Drive

Check with local pantries if they are collecting specific items for the upcoming holidays or if they are in need of pantry staples.

or make an end of year gift.
Mental Health & The Holidays
The emotional and mental toll of the past months may leave many feeling exceptionally fatigued by the holidays before they have even arrived.

If you need to keep things simple to protect your mental health, then take the time for self-care.
And, if you need to talk to someone, reach out to JFCS...
