Every year I am asked how to donate to VBN. Every year I answer those messages with pretty much the same answers.
Donate to a local charity that you know is legit or donate to Toys For Tots.
If you go shopping, you will probably see a Marine here or there helping collect toys for kids. Pick up an extra toy and toss it in the box for a disadvantaged kid or you can donate online at: https://www.toysfortots.org/
This is the only charity link sanctioned to be posted on VBN.
Kids getting toys from Marines, it doesn't get much nicer than that this time of year.
Of course your local food banks might appreciate a little help if you can swing it.
Those marines usually have a hat out for those who don't like or want to shop. I usually introduce them to Benjamin or Ulysess.
