Any time of year is a great time for helping others, and your stories of generosity inspire others to pay it forward.
It could be as simple as inviting a lonely neighbor over for Christmas dinner or gathering needed supplies for a young student going off to college. Perhaps you provided shelter for a friend who needed company in rough times. Or, maybe someone helped you in your time of need.
Whatever the situation, the generosity of others always helps make gloomy times a little bit brighter. Feel inspired to do a good deed while enjoying CAPPER's reader stories about helping others.

Preserving the Bounty

What are some of your favorite recipes for preserving foods? Have you mastered any techniques that make the process simpler or more effective?
How did you learn to preserve your harvest? Maybe your mother, grandmother or great-grandmother taught you the art of canning and freezing. Did you pass your knowledge on to your children and grandchildren?
