We have been discussing the word charity at our school. One of our students demonstrated a great spirit of giving without expecting anything in return this year with his own personal birthday party. Joey is now 9 years old and in lieu of accepting gifts at his party, he made the following request.
He asked his friends to bring a food donation to his party. Then this week he delivered the food to the Lighthouse Shelter personally.
His dad said, “We have found this practice to be helpful in delivering the message that there are many people in need of our help and we should also be thankful for the lives that we do have.”
Thank you Joey for putting into action the lessons you have learned about charity. Great job!
