Jacky Poulsen likes to do something extra during the holiday season to help struggling and homeless neighbors.

"Usually it’s something like collecting new socks or warm clothes for winter. Last year I wanted to do something different," said Poulsen, a volunteer with Partners for Change, a community-based program that helps those in the Tri-Valley achieve financial self-sufficiency. "I’ve come to appreciate the challenges of having neither a car nor the financial means to pay for public transportation, so I decided to do a small-scale bus ticket drive. My friends were so generous that we were able to donate about 500 bus tickets ($800). My friends were not only generous, but also grateful for the opportunity to do something that so directly helps people in need, and with zero overhead!"
