Remember back around Thanksgiving when folks were collecting canned goods or just after that when toy drives were in full swing and collections for warm clothing? Why don't we do that ALL the time? There are people in need at any time of the year, not just for a month or two at year's end. Think about putting aside a couple of food items every single week and donating them to a food bank, church, or other organization that is helping those in need. Some places will also accept toys and clothing as well.
