Gratitude

Grow you and your family’s hearts three sizes this season with a family gratitude journal. Not only is it a great way to get your family thinking about what they are grateful for, but it is a great way to reconnect with loved ones and have more meaningful conversations!

Inform

During the holidays, most kids have one thing on their minds. PRESENTS! While that is a fun part of the holidays, it is also a great time to teach your kids about empathy and remind them that not all kids are as fortunate as they might be. Although this is a festive time, make sure to slow down and remind them that there are many reasons to be grateful.   

Volunteer

Volunteering your time at the local food bank or food pantry will not cost you anything, but we can assure you it will be rewarding helping those in need. There are many ways to help at the food bank. Check out your opportunities. If you can’t give money, a priceless way to give back is to volunteer!
