The Youth Council has been busy doing what we do best – serving. We are always looking for ways to provide service in our city and we’ve recently had two opportunities to accomplish this goal.
In November we identified a family who needed help with a Thanksgiving dinner. In our youth council meeting we came up with a plan. We made a grocery list of food needed for a healthy and delicious dinner. Next we divided up the list and headed to the store to buy the food. Then we boxed everything up and delivered the groceries to this awesome family. They were very appreciative and we were so excited to help.
In December our service project included a Sub for Santa. We were so happy to help provide a nice Christmas to a family with lots of children. First we delivered a Christmas tree and decorations to this family. Next we went shopping with a wish list from each child. We had to be careful and creative with the donated funds we used to buy presents. After all the shopping we met at the city and wrapped the gifts. We piled in cars and delivered the presents. Wow, it was incredible.
We are so thankful to be able to serve others. There is always lots of laughter and a little silliness when we get together but the joy of serving is the best gift we can give. We would like to thank all those who donated in any way to make our projects successful. A big thank you goes to an incredible family who received our service with sincere appreciation. We love you!!
