“Ways to Serve at Christmastime,” Ensign, December 2015, 6
President Monson takes the time to visit the elderly and those in care centers, especially at Christmastime. He noted that there are those who are happy because they’ve received visitors, while others only hope for visitors who never come. There are people waiting for somebody—maybe this Christmas, you can be that somebody.
The following is a list of just a few ways you can help make sure no one feels alone this Christmas. Feel free to think of more ways you can reach out in your community this season. “Is there one who awaits your visit?”
Make Christmas cards to send to the missionaries and the single and elderly members of your ward or branch.
Volunteer with a local community organization.
Give copies of the Book of Mormon as Christmas gifts to your friends and neighbors.
Visit elderly people in your ward or family.
Make treats to deliver to your neighbors.
