It’s easy for our children to develop a narrow vision of the world around them. They hear of the poor, the hungry, the lonely, but unless they’re purposefully led to engage with those who suffer, our children will not learn how to give to those who are less fortunate.

Volunteer your time.

Nursing homes are filled with people who don’t have family to come visit. Food pantries need stockers and other staff to care for the community poor. Soup kitchens always need workers, not just during the holidays. Even the local animal shelter could use a hand with taking care of the throwaways that end up there. Where can you and your family fill in?
