With Thanksgiving just weeks away, this is the time of year that gets everyone to think: "How can I give back?"

While help is needed year-round, there is something about the holidays that encourages people to step up and help those in need around them.

So I will stop babbling and tell you all the ways you can give back this November!

CASH FOR COATS

Circle Hyundai in Shrewsbury

This promotion is simple. Circle Hyundai is collecting coats for people and animals all month long for those who are not fortunate to be able to get one themselves. If you bring in two coats, you will receive $2,000 off any new vehicle in stock! Take a look at their website for details.

Fulfill: The Foodbank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties

Lou & Liz in the Morning will be broadcasting live from 5:30 AM to 10:00 AM at The Atlantic Club in Manasquan collecting your food donations for Fulfill. All you have to do is grab an extra can of food before you head to the gym for your morning work out!

For this day only, you can bring nonperishable food items or even go as far as donating a turkey because there will be a refrigerated truck on site!

Warmest Wishes Coat Drive

United Way of Monmouth & Ocean Counties are collecting children's coats that will be given  to those in need at our local pre-schools, elementary schools and middle schools. Please only donate coats with tags on them!

Here are the sizes that are needed: Toddler sizes - 3T to 5T; Children's sizes - Small to X-Large; Adult sizes - Small to X-Large.

You can also donate cash for the staff to purchase a coat on your behalf. Purchase a gift card to Old Navy or Boscov's and then mail your gift card to: 4814 Outlook Drive, Suite 107, Wall Township, NJ 07753.
