CRADLES TO CRAYONS
February 23, 2011

I organized a visit for my daughters' girl scout troop to volunteer at Cradles to Crayons last year. The girls sorted clothes and cleaned and sorted toys. They all were excited about what they were doing and unanimously said they felt that they had helped other kids like themselves directly by doing the work themselves, making the packages that would actually go to the recipients. It was a wonderful experience for the girls to have a hands on experience. Cradles to Crayons made volunteering meaningful and instilled in the girls a feeling for community service as well as a feeling of having the power and the responsibility to help others.

I'm sorry they moved further from our community. But the community outreach ideas should reach more people and i look forward to hearing of an event in our area.

MY ROLE:
