Give Thanks AND Give Back

by PBUnitedWay

Thanksgiving is almost here. On Thursday, many will enjoy a feast with family and friends – with a roof above their heads and warm clothes – with much to be thankful for.  But many others will go without –without shelter, without food, without loved ones, and often times without hope. This Thanksgiving, why don’t we give thanks AND give back? Here are some ways to give back to those in need right here in Palm Beach County.
