For our first month, we collected can goods and delivered cooked meals to the local food bank. The following month, we created and decorated cookie mixes in a jar. We sold them to help raise money for a local boy fighting cancer. This month we will be making bracelets at a local store and donating them the children at our county's hospital. Next month, when the weather is a little less wet, we will be on our plastic gloves and cleaning up our community.
Although, these services may not seem like much, they are a huge deal to those we reach and I am so proud of our kids and how they are learning to think of others besides themselves.
