Boxing the food so that they can take it to Lighthouse on Woodward and distribute them into the Thanksgiving Baskets. I couldn't believe all the food that was there! That was only ONE day's worth. They are accepting food donations (AND VOLUNTEERS) this whole week. I will be volunteering again on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday morning from 9am until 1pm. If anyone wants to join me, post up or give me a call.

Thanks Sonny!

I believe they will learn a lot too. It's hard to explain to the kids that there is a world outside of their cozy little cul-du-sac! They ask so many good questions like, "Why don't people have homes?" "Why don't people have families that will help them?" "Why don't people have food?" I tell them that it is our job to try and help those in need of something. Whether it's supporing a shelter that houses someone with a warm, dry bed for the night, a Thanksgiving dinner, toys for kids, clothing, raising money for Leukemia, they need to get involved and try to make a difference. I tell them that sometimes bad things happen to good people and it's not their fault and that we should be willing to do whenever we can. I tell them to feel good about what they are doing because helping people in need is always the right thing to do.

They are still young yet so I don't think they don't grasp the whole picture but I hope it sinks in and they continue to want to make a difference.

How is your Make A Wish plan for Thanksgiving coming along?


Jen
