2018 Holiday Serving Opportunities

As the holiday’s approach, time will be spent planning events, decorating, shopping, spending time with loved ones and making memories together. It’s such a fun and special time of year. As we embark on this holiday season,we hope that you will make giving back a part of how your family celebrates. 

 

Here at SOS, we spend all year working with local organizations that do some amazing things in our community.  We thought we’d share with you our top 5 ways to give back during the holiday season. We also want to make the process of jumping in easy, so we have a team member ready to take care of all the details for you!
