With the holiday season upon us, now is the best time to spread cheer and make a difference to the people around you.  According to Mike Giering, Executive Director of Cityteam Portland, “The why behind serving and helping those in the community is different for each of us, but our belief is that each of us has something to offer our neighbor, so the how is easier—do something! Befriend a neighbor in need. Serve a meal at a homeless shelter. Make a small donation to a local nonprofit that does work in an area that you are passionate about.”
