In light of the holiday season, Pastor Jeff Hayes of Faith Temple Church in Sioux Falls says residents are in the 'spirit of giving.'

"During the month of December and maybe into November, people are just giving and organizations give more and more.  It's a wonderful thing to see!  I think it's patterned after the greatest gift ever given to us--Jesus on Christmas.  The whole secret is to continue that spirit and attitude of giving in January and the rest of the year."

One way to do that, according to Pastor Jeff, is to volunteer at Faith Temple's weekly Food Giveaways.

"Oh absolutely!  We can have people give food---we can have people give money to the Faith Temple Food Giveaways.  We can also have people come out and volunteer.  It isn't hard.  We just ask them to come at three o'clock in the afternoon.  Just come in the building and say 'I want to volunteer.'"

Friday's Food Giveaway kicks off at 4 p.m. at the W. H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls.
