Even if embarrassing moments and silly comments ensue, gathering together with family members for a grand holiday celebration is a privilege. Not everyone may have that privilege. Due to various circumstances, there are those who cannot be with their family during the holidays. One of my friends have moved out away from her family and is unable to have a gathering with them because of a family dispute. There are also runaway youth who may not be able to gather together with their family either due to their family situation not allowing them to go back or having no means of returning home. There are also those who have been abandoned by their family and are homeless for the holidays. If you know anyone under these situations, tell them don’t be afraid to call 1-800-RUNAWAY; our trained volunteers can direct them to local shelters for a warmer holiday or set them up to get home, free, with our Home Free Program. – Vivian
