The holidays are upon us, and we're hoping to spread some cheer by sharing your favorite stories of how your co-op has brought holiday spirit to your community—perhaps that's a special event your co-op held to commemorate the season, or putting up festive decorations, or collecting donations for those in need.

Feeling inspired? Use the form below to send us 100-150 words to answer the question, what is your favorite memory of your co-op bringing holiday spirit to your community?

These memories can be from any year. Photos are not required, but if you do have a related image, feel free to upload it using the form below (recommended size is 1,000 or more pixels wide), and please include caption and credit information in the "photo description" field.

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. ET on Friday, Dec. 10, and the compilation will be published Tuesday, Dec. 14 .
