From Nov. 2nd— 13th, we will be collecting canned foods and dry goods to donate to the Capital Area Food Bank.
This is a wonderful opportunity to teach children about giving, helping others, empathy, and awareness for those who may be food insecure.
How you can involve your child:
- Let them pick out something at the store or your home pantry and bring it to school to put in the box.
- Acknowledge to them that people asking for money may not have food and this is one way to help others.
- Point out businesses or organizations that are also collecting “like our school” is doing.
- Praise their thoughts and acts of kindness at the moment and then share them with the whole family.
