In this season of giving, we have compiled the following list to help you locate charitable organizations that would benefit from your support. Whether this support is financial, or volunteering your time, both are invaluable and much needed, not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year as well.

This list, by no means, accounts for all the worthy charities out there, but was simply put together by staff members of the company that helps Santa Claus create CLAUS.COM.

We hope you have a happy holiday.
