The holidays can be a wonderful time of the year filled with friends, family, food, music and good cheer. But it's not like this for everyone. There are those people who may not have a home to go to for the holidays or a warm meal to look forward to. But we all have the opportunity to help in any way we can. Some people donate money but when you're not sure if you can do that don't forget that there are other ways you can help too. Many places have food, toy and coat drives so be on the lookout in your local area. Below are a couple in the New York area and check your local grocery stores or Starbucks to see if they have a drop-spot for toys.
