My daughter and I became involved with Joshua's Heart last summer in order to fullfill her middle school honor society service hours requirement. However, we enjoyed the experience so much, she has gone well beyond the number of hours that were required and the rest of the family has now gotten involved. My husband and I had spoken many times before about getting our children involved in community work so that they may grow to understand a broader view of the world around them and develop empathy for others. However, it is not easy to find an organization that welcomes young children to get involve and not only watch, but actually do hands on and lead the charitable work. That is Joshua's Heart. Founded by a young boy, who still leads it today, with the support of his mother and family, Joshua's Heart invites children of all ages to take part. Even my 2-3 year old helped us fill grocery bags at one of the last food distributions!
