'Tis the season for giving and doing it often. Instead of indulging in the gluttonous tendencies that seem to surface around the holidays, extend a helping hand to those who need it the most. On Wednesday, December 4, Old Vinings Inn hosts a "Happy Hour for Hope" where guests can make a difference in the lives of those experiencing difficult times. Spread cheer to a child by bringing a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots, a bag of canned goods for MUST Ministries' food pantry, where you could provide a family's only meal of the day and/or a $10 donation to The Attic Bar at Old Vinings Inn beginning at 6 p.m. As a thank you for your kindness, enjoy an array of complimentary appetizers to go along with your favorite drinkable desserts. Get your family, neighbors and even coworkers on board to participate. And remember, each day and circumstance is not set in stone; you never know when you'll be the one needing help. Food for thought, eh?
