I worked for a small company about 10 years ago. One holiday season, two of the folks in our company adopted two families in need for the holidays. We all pitched in and made sure they had presents, food and all the trimmings to enjoy the holidays. I felt great that I was able to contribute and help families in need during the holidays.
Since then my family has been fortunate to always have more than we need during the holiday season. Every year my wife and I adopt one or two families through school, church or friends to continue our tradition of helping others. It's my favorite part of the season.
