The holiday season is time for cheer and spending time with our loved ones and friends. It is also a time to reflect on thanks and teach our children about the importance of holiday charity. Some children get enthused about having a big Thanksgiving feast or seeing piles on piles of Christmas presents under the Christmas tree,but they may be unaware that other children don’t have the same fortunate experience on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
We do not celebrate holidays to simply show off lavish gifts; we celebrate holidays to give back to the community and show appreciation for what we are thankful for. There are easy ways your children can give back to the community this holiday season, especially through progressive giving.
Progressive giving allows us to use technology to donate money, food, clothing and other valuable goods to those in need with a simple touch of a computer mouse. You can teach your children to give daily, weekly, or monthly during the holiday season to those in need of the extra help here and there.
One of the most heart warming types of charity you can allow your children to actively participate in is holiday gift giving to children in need. It’s important for children to understand that it’s better to give than receive. You can teach them this invaluable life lesson by helping us here at Mid Atlantic Deck & Fence put a smile on a child’s face for Christmas through Toys For Tots.
Tis the season for giving so let’s work together to fill those boxes full of toys. Hurry, the drive ends Thursday December 19th. It’s important that children know how to perform charity and community work all year round, not just during the holidays.
Here’s how Toys For Tots works:
Toys For Tots is an annual toy collection /distribution campaign that happens nationwide in 700+ communities. All toys collected for the Toys For Tots campaigned should be new and unwrapped. You can drop your toys off at participating local businesses such as Mid Atlantic Deck & Fence. Toys are given to children in need by age and gender.
