The holidays are a time of giving, not just to those you love, but to the community as well. Organizations like Volunteers of America rely on generous hearts to reach families who need help with even basic needs like food or a place to sleep. There are many ways we can help our struggling neighbors, even if our own bank accounts are slim. Mark Johnson, Vice President of Development for Volunteers of America Western Washington, joined Margaret to talk about some of the many services they provide for families, seniors and veterans across the Puget Sound region.

One of the easiest and most popular ways to help Volunteers of America is by donating a vehicle (car, truck, boat, RV, plane - they'll take many types of vehicles, running or not). Visit the vehicle donation website for more information: or call: 877-CAR-4-VOA (877-227-4862)

(Note: all of the money raised from sales of donated vehicles in Western Washington remains in Western Washington).
