Season to Share 2013 Families

______________________________________________________________________________________

The Palm Beach Post launched its annual holiday campaign, Season to Share, in 1995. Each year, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, the paper and website tell the stories of more than a dozen struggling families who have been nominated by local charitable organizations. Readers are invited to contribute money, merchandise and services to help them. Thank you for sharing.
