Elementary Service Project

 

This year we are including a service project component in our elementary class. To choose a focus for that project, the kids had a chance to make proposals at the Children’s Annual Meeting, and then everyone voted on what they would like to do. The choice this year was to help shelter animals.

Unfortunately, children under 14 years old cannot volunteer at the shelter with the animals. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty this age group can do!

In our Sunday classes so far we have:

Next up: A Bake Sale and Supply Collection! Next Sunday the kids will be running a table in the hall during coffee hour, selling baked goods and collecting donations of animal supplies, all to benefit the local animal shelter.

And to cap it all off: I’ve arranged a class about cats and dogs and a tour provided by the animal shelter. This is on a Friday afternoon, for a limited number of participants, but those who wish to go will find out how dogs and cats communicate with us and tour the shelter.

This has been a great project!
