Volunteering is FUN!

The kids and I volunteered at a local charity this afternoon. The charity fills stockings with donated goods and delivers them at Christmastime to a wide range of other charities. They fill around 2500 stockings each year. We were only able to fill 28 in 2 hours time.

The kids had so much fun filling the stockings with items from shampoo, socks, mittens, soap, and all sorts of toys and of course candy too. Each and every item was placed in with love as each child imagined what it would be like if they received such a wonderful bounty of goodies on Christmas.

What a great way for the kids to show God’s love to others. It was a really good experience for each of them and we will be doing it again soon.
