For years my family has been involved in various charities, but we have found the one’s listed below to be our favorite. If you are looking to donate your time or money to a good cause, please consider these great organizations.
These are our local charities, but if you Google any of the below, I am sure you will find a chapter in your area. Our choose a charity that is located in your area to become involved with. Do it from the heart!
Getting the entire family involved is a great way to spend time together and help others. Teach your children to always help others. They will grow into wonderfully caring individuals and will carry on the tradition of helping those that can’t always help themselves.

Toy for Tots
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.
I became involved with the CF Foundation several years ago, when a friend of mines daughter was born with the disease. Through careful research and generous donations the CF Foundation is getting closer to a cure everyday.
Heather McCoy was 26 years old when she lost her battle to CF. She left behind a mother, father, sister, brother and a young daughter. Heather was full of life and always had a smile on her face no matter what she was facing. She never complained and was just a joy to be around.
Heather was a true inspiration to everyone. Her family are such wonderful people and it is sad that there was not a cure found in time to save Heather’s life, but with your help I am sure there will be a cure and because of your donation to this worthy cause we can save the children of the future from this disease.
Your support to find a cure is imperative, so please if you are going to support a charity look into the CF Foundation to see how you can help.
