This holiday season there are lots of ways to give back here in Howell and we want to help spread the word to help as many people as possible.
Places like Twin Pond Farms and the Howell Police Athletic League in the old Southard School have giving trees. This is a chance for people who want to help make a wish come true for a child in town can give an anonymous gift to bring a smile to someone’s face.
The Howell Patch and all Patch sites across the area have a giving back blog. where you can find groups or people who need help or post information on your own events to help others.
