There are very many things to be thankful for this holiday season. However, sometimes we just need to spread a little holiday cheer. Looking for a way to help others? Here are some of the many ways you can help around the Dayton Area:


God’s Grace Food Pantry

According to the With God’s Grace Facebook page, the food pantry will be handing out Thanksgiving to-go meals to families in the Dayton community.

The event will be held from 1 pm to 2 pm at 5505 North Dixie Drive in Dayton.

House of Bread

Volunteer for House of Bread here

The House of Bread was founded in 1983 by Sister Dorothy Kammerer and Joe Bettman, with the belief that no one deserves to go hungry. Over 30 years since the first meal was served, the House of Bread today operates with that very principle.

“At the House of Bread, we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Everyone deserves to have a meal in a place where they feel welcome and appreciated. No one is ever turned away from the House of Bread, and everyone is treated as a special guest.

We prevent hunger by offering a hot, nutritious, lunchtime meal 7 days a week. Staff and volunteers work together, primarily using donated food, to prepare the meal each day.  We serve lunch in two dining rooms, with one being specifically for our families with children.” -House of Bread
