November is for Giving Back

November. We think of Thanksgiving and gratitude, along with the official launch of the holiday  season. But at Prince William Living, we also think of our winners of The Giving Back Awards, the recognition we give local non-profits making a big difference right here in our area. So this month, our feature takes a look at the winners. Read about them, give them a pat on the back and see how you can support them.

In Destinations, we continue with that theme by looking at soup kitchens that serve, along with volunteer options you might not have considered. These kitchens are worth your time and support as they serve our communities, helping those that need a hand up and a warm meal.

Then, in Local Flavor, get ready for the Gourmet Guys who give back. These are local chefs on a mission to bring great food and a fun, family event to raise funds for educational programs such as those provided through Leadership Prince William. Read about the food, the contestants, the mission—and bacon.

November’s Family Fun is all about spreading kindness. How can you do that with the whole family? Find out in this month’s article.

Our High Note this month takes a look at crafting classes you might consider. Many of these are run through non-profits that donate their crafts to worthy causes. Check out the art being made and the meaning behind it, and get involved.

Not sure how to take care of those delicious Thanksgiving leftovers or the food you’re donating? Spend some time reading Home and Hearth for safety tips. Are you saving food safely?

Finally, we have this month’s Change Maker, as well as finance and health advice, plus much more as we celebrate the month of giving back. As always, if you want a simple way to give back to the community that benefits from our work, consider a subscription. For $20 you can get Prince William Living delivered right to your business or home door.

Thank you all for being valued members of our community. We at the magazine wish you a happy Thanksgiving and a joyful season of giving back.

All the best,
Rebecca Barnes
