Take Five: Thanksgiving Travel

If you feel less guilty after eating 12 pounds of stuffing or to prevent you from drinking all day and making things awkward at Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving activities can range from spending time with close family and friends, to Thanksgiving volunteer your time at a shelter this holiday season. This Thanksgiving, Nov. 25, many families and close friends will be sharing a warm meal and letting their loved ones know what they are thankful for. Some people aren’t so lucky and don’t have a warm meal or loved ones surrounding them this Thanksgiving.

As much as spending time with your loved ones and enjoy their company this Thanksgiving, try a little bit of volunteering or giving someone less fortunate than you a warm meal.

Here's how to find Thanksgiving volunteer opportunities:

Some websites you can try;

http://www.1800volunteer.org

http://www.pointsoflight.org (The Points of Light Foundation)

http://www.cns.gov (Corporation for National Community Service)

http://national.unitedway.org (The United Way)

Any of these sites should help direct you to some local opportunities by entering your zip code. Thanksgiving volunteer are also on your local volunteer center and see what's available like, Salvation Army, Local Soup Kitchens, Local Homeless Shelters, Local Churches and Synagogues. They will probably have some opportunities available! You can start a new tradition by being a Thanksgiving day volunteer this year and by checking the mention above. It always feels good to give back and give thanks to everything you have in your life.
