The Good Thing I Did for the Holidays.
Do you help others out around Christmas time? On one Saturday in December I did. I went down with my cousin and other people to a homeless shelter and packed boxes for the homeless, along with others. They would pass a shoe box down and each person at the table would put their item in the box and then pass it down. Some of the items we put in the box would be scarf, wash cloth, shaving cream, deodarant, socks, razors, soap, toothbrush, etc.
After the shoe box was full their would be people at the end of the line to wrap all of the boxs. We packed and wrapped about one hundred and thirty boxes. Its really sad if you think about it, that was only one homeless shelter in scranton with that many people. On christmas day, they will open the boxes. A lot more people should do this around Christmas time, because after you've helped someone out you will feel good about yourself, knowing you've done a good thing.
