When it starts to get cold outside and people begin to put up their holiday decorations, you cannot help but to get into the Holiday spirit! The holidays are not just about getting and giving gifts; they’re also about giving back to those who need help the most.

Sometimes you want to help people in need, but how? Thankfully, giving back does not have to be extravagant and expensive because, as the popular saying goes, it’s the thought that counts.

One man in Pennsylvania decided to give back by celebrating the holidays with the less fortunate in his community right in front of his door.

This kind man sets a tree up outside of his home, but instead of putting presents under the tree, and decorating it with lights and ornaments, he decorates it with essential items for the less fortunate.

“Every year this kind old man in my hometown offers clothing, shoes, anything useful to anyone in need,” a neighbor of the man shared on Reddit.

Anyone in need can go to this man’s Christmas tree and grab sneakers, clothing, hygiene items, and other things.

He wants people who need any of the items on his tree to just take them, and he does not want anything in return.

This man has conquered the art of giving back, and surely the people in need are thankful for his actions. This a great tradition and looks like it’s also inspired other people to join in too!

“That is fantastic. Imagine if everyone had one. Or, if every street had one!” wrote one commenter on Reddit.
