The saying goes "charity begins at home" and that is where I started - check out

If you would like to donate canned food to me over the holiday season I will be happy to collect!
My goal is 50-100 cans!!!
Or if you do not live in my area but are donating cans to your local food bank -
please make a comment here!
I would love to know your charity endeavors!
So with the canned food drive underway, through my church we are making boxes for
Operation Christmas Child
This is operated by Samaritan's Purse International Relief
and these boxes go around the world!
This was an event my 2 children were able to better understand as we purchased the items for each box. I am thrilled that my children are learning various ways of giving to others.
My 9 year was reading over the list of requested items and asked me why do they not have access to this stuff. It was a teaching moment and my heart was overfilled with gratitude that she was connecting the dots.
We filled both boxes with colorful, useful and fun things!
I am so thankful for this opportunity!
The final step is to include the label with the age range.
You can also include a personal note with your address and photo and just maybe the recipient may write back!
Thank you to my church for the organization of this wonderful opportunity to give!
