One thing that is very important to me and my husband is that we teach N the importance of giving back! So the last two months we have been discussing community projects or things we can do to help or give back to our community! I have several ideas and basically one day a month for the next six months we will take a day to do this...
Volunteering together as a family is a wonderful way of creating a special bond and lasting memories for families... Here are our plans! And ideas for you and your for your family...
*August 14~ We will be Volunteering with the Cobblestone Project Planting & Harvesting! WE will be harvesting the farm : )
The Farm initiatives has grown out of the story that began with the relationship established at 1,287 with World Garden's Community Feeding Program now known as the Garden. http://cobblestoneproject.org/Home.aspx I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS:)))
*September - Volunteer at the Bella Vista Animal Shelter http://www.bellavista-animalshelter.org/
We will be taking dogs for walks, feeding and cleaning stalls: ) I am excited about this b/c I know that Noah loves animals and I am so glad to teach him that you should always love and take care of animals:)
*October~ Laundry Love in Rogers Ar
Laundry Love Projects with local laundry mats in cleaning the clothes of those in shelters,motels, garages or on the streets.
This is a great way to help others in need, especially with it getting cold weather: )
With November thru January being the holiday seasons I have SEVERAL ideas so I am still planning these months... Ideas vary from helping at the womens shelter, helping at any shelter handing out food, feeding Thanksgiving meal to a needy family.Adopted a child to buy Christmas gifts for WE are so excited!:)
