While Thanksgiving is a great time to spend time with family, eat lots of delicious food, celebrate the our heritage, and giving thanks, people tend to forget the most important part: GIVING. There are plenty of opportunities this Thanksgiving to give back to the community and help those who may not have a family to spend time with, or the opportunity to put food on their table. Many places in Bell County and surrounding areas are looking for volunteers this holiday season to give back and spread the love. If you are interested, check out the list below of volunteer opportunities available this Thanksgiving day.
