How To Volunteer This Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday because we get to gather around the people we love the most and share a delicious meal. For a lot of people however, this holiday can be a lonely reminder of what they do not have. Something as simple as a hot meal or a friend to talk to can change the lives of thousands of Savannah's less fortunate. This year we've compiled a list of volunteer opportunities for you to get out and create a memorable thanksgiving for yourself while also helping those in need.
