'Tis the season for giving, and The Bee's photographers kept their eyes and camera lenses peeled this week for people and organizations helping others.

They found Alzheimer's Affiliates of Stanislaus County, which is in the middle of its 20th annual holiday poinsettia sale, with volunteers delivering the plants to businesses and private residences. The Stanislaus County Area Agency on Aging distributed emergency preparedness packets to seniors at Glenwood Mobile Home Park in Modesto. The folks at Turlock Together are gathering food and toys for those in need. And the Soroptimists at Vintage Faire Mall are counting down the days until Christmas, hoping to get all of the gifts on the tree tags purchased.
