Giving is the focus of the holiday season and the Volunteers of America want to remind us all that gifts aren't always wrapped up with bows.

The Your Caring Gifts campaign is underway and VOA President and CEO JoAnne Ryan spoke with YNN about how a little donation could help in a big way.

A gift as simple as $50 can help a family settle into the VOA homeless shelter, a safe haven for 30 days to help them get back on their feet toward independent housing. This service is used daily.

The VOA has 14 rooms in the homeless shelter to help those in need. Families usually become separated in homeless shelters but in this type of housing, a family is kept together with the philosophy of using each other's strength to get back on their feet.

Visit the Volunteers of America to donate and to see how a simple donation could help a family in need.
