Recently, I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Time Out Shelter Thrift Store. I spent five hours on a Saturday helping around the shop. It was simple and rewarding because I knew that I was not only helping to sell items at the shop, I was also helping the Time Out Shelter.
So, for this Christmas, you could give one of the greatest gifts by volunteering your time at one of the many good organizations in Payson that help others, such as the Time Out Thrift Store, the humane society, the hospital, or the care centers. Not only is it a gift to others, but it's a very rewarding feeling for yourself.
