This year I was able to do two Christmas jars. One I gave to a woman whose husband passed away suddenly. She has five children and I heard about this situation through my work grapevine, so I put the jar in a box and left it at the front desk where she works.
The second jar went to a neighbor who is just having a hard time making ends meet. I have already starting saving my change for this years jar. I told several of my co-workers about the Christmas jars and they did their own Christmas jars last year.
