It’s easy to get wrapped up—literally— in our own affairs and those of our loved ones during the holiday season, but it’s more important now than ever to think outside of yourself your circle.
During this time of giving, consider giving some of your time to those less fortunate in our community.
Here are some events (courtesy of Columbus Gives Back) this month to get out and give back.

Our volunteers will be wrapping gifts for clients and decorating the building for the holidays.
