Cupid’s Advice:

Giving back to your community with your partner makes for a great time and memories.  With the holidays approaching, assist those around you with these three tips:

1. Donate: Donate clothes you and your partner no longer wear.

2. Volunteer: With Thanksgiving almost here, volunteer at a food bank by sorting donations and serving clients.  If you do this with your significant other, it’s a great way to bond over a good deed.

3. Charities: If your lacking time, make a contribution to charities, such as Habitat for Humanity International and Feed the Children, which both accept money to assist people.
