Ways to give: Posts from D.C. bloggers

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Hope you've been able to find shelter from this very wild and cold weather spell. We've got a fine selection of posts today, including several that highlight ways you can share the holiday spirit with others in the community. D.C. Like a Local also offers the back story on several of the Christmas Trees you'll soon be seeing around town.

From the Bates Area Civic Association,10 tips for staying safe this holiday season.

Gifts for the Homeless is holding its annual clothing drive this weekend, Borderstan reports. Donations can be dropped off at the Portals III on D Street between 12th and 13th streets SW from Saturday to Sunday. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. GFTH was started by a group of lawyers who wanted to find a way to give back to the city.

You can also help children in the District by working with Safe Shores – the D.C. Children’s Advocacy Center -- on their holiday drive. Safe Shores works with children who have been physically and/or sexually abused in D.C. A link to more information at Susie’s Budget and Policy Corner.

From D.C. Like a Local – mini-profiles of D.C.’s many Christmas Trees.

If you can’t give gifts and donate money, you can always give time. The Hill is Home has a list of holiday volunteering opportunities.

That's it for now. Looks like the wild weather is behind us, but the cold is here to stay. Temperatures tomorrow? In the 40s. But don't worry, you'll always have great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere to help you keep warm. Back tomorrow with more.
