  • I completely agree! Recently, we volunteered at a local food pantry through a volunteer project with my company. Even younger kids (5 and 6) can help sort the food that will later be distributed. We are going to be signing up to help the pantry out more often as we all came away feeling good for helping others who really need it. We want our kids to understand that they are lucky to have the things they do, and that being part of a community means helping those in need.
