As The Great Thanksgiving Giveaway approaches, we are hoping to inspire more of our listeners to give what they can during these hard times.

The holiday season is the time of year some people take time to appreciate the things they have, while others are trying to figure out how to give people the things they need.

2020 has been tough and it seems like there might be more people this year, trying to figure out how to get the things they not only want but need.

Townsquare Media El Paso with Firstlight Federal Credit Union, Mattress Firm, The Boys and Girls Clubs of El Paso, and many others are teaming up to help give back to the community, with donations benefiting The Great Khalid Foundation, for The Great Thanksgiving Giveaway.

For those who are truly appreciating how blessed they are this year, we are asking for your help to raise funds to hit The Great Thanksgiving Giveaway goal.

The Great Khalid Foundation has already started to spread the word to El Paso on how to receive a meal box, so we want to spread the word on why it is good to donate, not only during the holidays but all year long.

According to Psychology Today, a study published by researchers at the University of Buffalo found people who engage in activities involving helping behaviors reduce their mortality rates. During 2020, we are all hoping to find a way to make our brains feel some type of pleasure.

Luckily, you can easily feel it when you donate.

We hope you and your family stay safe during this pandemic and reach out for help if you need it. This year has been tough and we encourage those who can give, to give what they can. Those who need help, please, do not be afraid to ask. Have a safe, Thanksgiving, and stay El Paso strong!
