Volunteering with Kids

Dr. Wonderful and I both volunteer for a few different organizations and enjoy it very much.  Little J has been asking about joining us from time to time.  However, all our organizations require you to be over 18 years old.  So, I searched our local area to find something he would enjoy. 

Our local food bank sponsors one Saturday a month that children can come with their parents and help.  Little J had the best time and it was difficult to get him to leave.  I think we'll be doing this more often.  He appreciated all that we have been blessed with when he realized that some children don't have food and go hungry.  It also gave him a sense of accomplishment to help finish so many projects and to give back to his community.  I secretly enjoyed that he was exhausted when he came home!
