STLtoday - Your Journal - Collinsville Herald: "Charitable giving can be confusing for many

As the saying goes, it is better to give than to receive.

But during the holidays, the spirit of generosity can quickly turn into a feeling of confusion when confronted with all the options available in giving to the less fortunate.

It often seems like everywhere one looks, there are canned food drives being held and bell-ringers standing outside busy shopping sites. There are churches collecting money, clothes, jackets and toys for children. There are organizations trying to raise funds to help pay for heating bills, or to provide Christmas dinner to families in need."
