Actress Candace Cameron Bure is working alongside The Salvation Army during this Christmas season to show people how they can help support families in need.
Bure told The Christian Post that the holiday season is a special time of the year for her, but it can be difficult for others who are having a tough time.
"Christmas is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. The biggest reason is that we celebrate Jesus Christ," Bure said. "It can be a hard season for so many people and that's why the work that I help do with The Salvation Army is so important—because there are so many people in need, especially during the holidays."
The 44-year-old stressed that many families have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 and Christmas could be different for them this year.
"While it's a time of giving and should be a time of cheer, it can be very, very heartbreaking, especially for people who are struggling. Whether that's financial, whether it's just circumstances that they're in—homelessness, needing food, just needing help and daycare, and now with the pandemic, of course, that need has gone up."
