December 1-6

For people in need

* With your family, volunteer to help sort toy-drive donations in your community.

* Keep a basket for food-bank donations in your house this month. Every time your family has a special meal or snack during the month, add something to the basket.

* Use some of your own money to buy a gift for a kid your age who lives in foster care. (A parent can help you find out how to give your gift.)

* Pray for people who feel sad at Christmas time.
