Wee Are the World — Soup Kitchen Volunteering

The holiday season is in full swing so we thought it would be a fitting time to teach lil ones about giving back to the community. For the next few Mondays, we will offer you suggestions on how your family can help those in need. Today's focus: volunteering at a local soup kitchen.

Just about every city or town has a community center — be it a university, a church, a synagogue or a YMCA — that offers people assistance and can use the help of volunteers. Check online or in the phone book to find one in your area. Then, let them know you'd like to lend a hand. And, encourage others to volunteer by gathering a gaggle of your friends to join you.

Nice post!!! It's so important to instill in our children that we are all part of a larger community and that we all have a responsibility to look out for others (it starts at home ... how we treat one another in our family, how we treat our friends, school mates, etc. and how to treat our neighbors in the larger community, how we take care of our community --local and global) Thanks for putting something out there about giving back!
