Kids and Community Service
One of my focuses for the new year is to do a once a month community service project with the children. Something that is appropriate for their ages, everyone can help with, and can show them what a difference in some one's life. We are working on small projects that are not incredibly time consuming and can fit into our budget. In December we chose 3 angels off of the Salvation Army Tree that our church and purchased one gift for each child. In January, we put together health kits made up of 12 personal necessity items to send to Haiti. Each child packaged their own health kit from items we purchased at Walmart. For our February, our 4-H club is visiting our local animal shelter. Today, we used some leftover fleece to make blankets to donate to the shelter. We also are gathering up some old towels to take along with us. I had some cute pictures to post of the children making the blankets, but just when I think I have a good handle on this new computer, it shows me different and I was unable to upload the pictures. If I figure it out later tonight, I will post the pictures. I will also post our future projects in the months to come.
