‘Tis the season. Lights and trees are sprouting up everywhere, the temperature is dropping and everyone is starting to feel the frenzy of the holiday season. People are making their lists, checking them twice, and feverishly shopping to find their perfect gifts for everyone.

What about all the stuff that’s in your house that you’ve been meaning to give away but haven’t gotten around to yet? Is it overwhelming you? Why not purge now before all of the things you will be gifted come in.






Here’s a list of local resources and charities so you can “give the gift of giving away” and “gift give” at the same time.

Happy Holidays!
