Service Project #23 – Feed the Hungry Box

kidsThis month, the kids were collecting coins for another ELCA World Hunger project.  The church passed out little boxes for coin collecting again, and the kids started collecting loose change around the house.  The project lasted during the month of November with everyone bringing their coins in to church on Thanksgiving Eve or the Sunday after Thanksgiving.  I really hope to make our service projects more creative in 2013, but this was something quick easy that the kids could do together (collect the change).  They also got to dump it in the big bucket together before church started.  Madison is holding the little box where they collected the coins.  This project did help to teach them that a little change might not seem like much, but when you put it together with everyone else’s “little change”, it could make a BIG difference.
