There is no shortage of philanthropic efforts or organizations in Northwest Arkansas, but there are still people in need. Chances are you already have a personal cause and a plan to give.

If you need a little help, here's a starter list of where you can put gratitude into action:

  1. The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas — From ringing bells to helping out in an Angel Tree warehouse, there's plenty of opportunity. Email or check out Facebook.
  2. 7hills Homeless Center — This Fayetteville organization always needs volunteers.
  3. Little Free Pantry — This is more a movement than organization. Pantries to help the food insecure are all over the country.
  4. Pedal it Forward NWA — Even if you don't know how to build a bike, this Rogers organization could use help getting bikes to those in need.
  5. The Northwest Arkansas Food Bank — Food comes in and goes out every day, so there's always opportunity to help out.

Be smart: Of course, time is tight during the holidays, so financial donations are always an option.

  • Whatever you do, thank you for being a part of our great community.
