It’s never too early to start teaching your babe about the joys of giving. And while these lessons typically take shape in the form of sharing Cheerios or toys with a friend (good luck with that…) or gifting art projects, today, new guest contributor Sharon writes in about a way for local families to give back to other families:
“There are many ways to show little ones how we can serve our community. One upcoming event that helps hungry families throughout Massachusetts is Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger. This event (May 6th) requires whatever part of yourself you are willing to give, whether it is by pledging a walker, making a general donation, volunteering, or walking yourself. What it does is provide critical resources for hungry children and families in Massachusetts, and offers those who take part a sense of action and awareness to create a community where truly no one is left behind or left hungry.
Last year’s event was amazing to be a part of. A friend and I walked/ran alongside families, athletes, school kids doing community service, and elderly people. It was a lovely day to take time away from PDAs, computers, and television to get fresh air and spend time with loved ones. Whether you choose to walk one, some, or all 20 miles, the experience of being a part of something big clearly was exciting for both kids and adults.”
