Double Lunch Bag Tuesday May 31st

Can you imagine not having a meal for several days? Can you imagine trying to start a job or attend school with a hungry belly? Our grade one class along with many other classes in the school are joining together to bring an extra lunch to give to someone in need. We have wonderful volunteers who will drive the lunches to The Mission and to The Innercity Ministries. These two organizations are in great need and they are truly excited about our contribution. We are using this activity to talk about poverty, compassion for others, caring for those in need and healthy eating. Thank you so much for all of those who are willing to help out with The Double Lunch Bag activity.
