Service, Remembrance, and Helping Others Part 1

Summer’s coming to a close and we’re all getting back to our school schedules.  For many children, community service is part of the school curriculum.  Even if it is NOT, many parents want their children to learn to help others, to cheerfully volunteer and be of service to those in need.  Even with busy schedules, here are two ways to help.

September 11, 2013 is National Day of Service and Remembrance.  There are many national events going on to remember those lost on 9-11 as well as to honor those who continue to serve and fight for freedom.  If you’d like to find out how to be part of this, go to:  http://www.serve.gov/sept11.asp

On September 15, thousands of restaurants nationwide will be donating proceeds all week to help end childhood hunger in the US.  Visit: http://www.dineout.nokidhungry.org

On Friday, I’ll have more suggestions on simple ways to serve others.
