If one of your holiday traditions has been making goodies and you no longer have anyone to bake for go ahead and make them anyway. Donate the fruits of your efforts to a homeless shelter, share them with your neighbors and co-workers and don’t forget the soldiers far away from home at the holidays. There are groups that would appreciate your baked goods to include in care packages for members of the military.
