Please consider giving your local Salvation army a large check.
If you have a local food bank that is taking food donations, try to buy some bulk something (make sure it is something they can take, which usually means something that doesn't ned refrigeration or special storage) to give to them. Bulk rice, pasta, etc. seem like good choices to me.
This is not just a season for giving, it is a year where need will be more acute than normal.
Good luck and God bless, I probably won't have another post until 2009 (i.e. for two weeks)...
That is all.
