No matter how little time I have, I try to find little ways that I can give back this time of year to make the holidays a little brighter for those in need.
The best ways that we can help our community often don't mean reaching into our pocketbooks, it means donating our time to make a difference for those around us.
With these Ways to Give... for Free, you'll find 15 ways that you can give without it costing you a dime. No matter how much time you have there are ways you can help, starting at 5 minutes all the way to making a commitment through a volunteer organization near you.
Anything on the list catch your eye?
