Volunteering in Reading and North Reading is a great way to give back to others and spread holiday cheer and warmth in your community.
Donating your time or giving a special holiday gift to a family or child in need can make a big impact.
There are lots of ways to help make the holidays truly special for those who are less fortunate. You can pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child, adopt a family through The Salvation Army or donate to Toys for Tots.

Mission of Deeds: The Mission of Deeds is always looking for volunteers.
"Volunteers are absolutely the key to what we do," Director Bruce Murison said.
