Tis the season of giving!

Whether it's giving to your friends or family, homeless pets and animals, there's always something or someone that could use some extra help. It could even be a stranger that's in need of assistance as well. We can do our best to help out.

 It seems that during this time, people tend to slow down and show more compassion and love for others. It's the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas that feels like faith in humanity is restored and we can peacefully coexist.

Whether it's making a donation, volunteering your time or simply raising the spirits and spreading cheer throughout the Hudson Valley, a little bit can go a long way. If you aren't sure of where to start, here are some easy ways to give back to Hudson Valley organizations.
