Teaching kids about giving

We all know it is important to teach our kids to give, but sometimes it is hard to find the perfect opportunity to let them be a part of the giving process.

Teaching kids about giving is easy when you can partner with local community groups like churches and schools that are doing community service projects. 

The past few years our church, Journey Christian in Midlothian, has partnered with CCHASM (Chesterfield Colonial Heights Alliance For Social Ministry) to provide 2500 total Thanksgiving meals in the Richmond community (500 meals from Journey is the goal this year).

We were honored to be able to support this effort and give food to these families in need.

This year, Aidalyn is almost 3 and able to help and be a part of the process of packing the bags and learning just a little about giving in return.

We all went to the store with our list from CCHASM. Aidalyn had one buggy and Annaleigh had the other, haha. We filled up both!

We brought all the food home and sorted it into the bags to be able to take to the church. This was a good learning activity for Aidalyn too – both sorting and counting. She enjoyed it so much!

I can’t wait to be able to take the bags to the church on Sunday and let her see all the other people who are dropping off their bags too.

If you would like do donate to CCHASM as well follow this link.
