Happy Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and as we continue through this holiday season, we wanted to reflect on some matters that are regularly brought up around this time.

We are always thrilled to see our already magnanimous community give even more come the holiday season, but as we approach the New Year, let us not lose that generous spirit.

In the cold winter months ahead, do not forget that your donations will continue to be needed, as contributions to charitable groups and organizations tend to fall off dramatically after the holidays end. So if you are able, try to give a little more in the coming months. Here at the Tribune, we will continue to gladly accept your coat, winter accessory, and toiletry donations for Livingston Philanthropies, and non-perishable food items for CHOW.
