Thanksgiving Giving in Palm Beach County

Preparations for Thanksgiving seem to usher in the sights and sounds of the holiday season. It is a time of year to be thankful, celebrate with family and to help those who might be far away from both.

For some in our community, this time of year is a challenge. Some parents have a hard time making it a special occasion for their family and some families have no way of being with their loved ones this time of year. Perez DuBois Real Estate wants to share some ways to give back at the beginning of this special time of year. Teach your children what it means to give to others and enjoy helping. It can make your season of celebrating even more meaningful.
