Many of us are comfortable in our lives, making easy to forget that some people are less fortunate, especially during the holiday season. There are plenty of ways to give back during the holiday season.

Gym teacher Mr. Landry says a good way to give back is to “help any cause you can”.

Junior Briana Finnegan says that spending time with each other and giving people gifts is another good way to give back. Junior Lucas Wenc and senior Devin Craig said that “giving presents” is a good way to give back.

Senior Trevor Swinburne suggested possibly the most obvious way: “Give money to the Walmart or Stop & Shop people. Giving some change every time you go grocery shopping can be such a little burden to you and a huge help to someone in need.”

December is a cold month here in Connecticut, the snow and wind can be brutal. Junior Aiyana Cyr says a good way to give back this time of the year is “to help out at homeless shelters”.

Helping out at homeless shelters can be a great way to make sure everyone is safe and warm, because everyone knows how awful these months can be, no one should be left on the street.

Mrs. Baumgartner says a good way to give back is to adopt a family, or donate something.  Mrs. Woznicki has her children pick out one gift each to donate, and she’ll give that toy to an organization. Giving back during the holiday season is easier than it sounds and there are so many ways to make someone’s holiday just a little bit brighter.
