This morning my beautiful boys and I will be going to our local Food Bank and helping pack boxes with donated food for others to take home. I’m very happy we get to work as a team with other volunteers. I’m very sad this is even necessary. I want my boys to meet the Director so she can explain why Food Banks are necessary. I know my kids will have a lot of questions. When we are done with our hour I’m going to load them up in our truck and make them watch the boxes get distrubted for a few minutes. They need to understand, the work you do, gets passed on to others. Helping others is a big part of my life, I want it to become part of my legacy.
The boys are actually excited. I’m making them wear masks and gloves. I don’t know if that’s policy at the Food Bank. I’m excited to see how many boxes we can do.
I’m a little bit bragging because I want my Batfans to know I am doing my small part to make my community better. Think about volunteering this summer. I’m leading by example in my house. I’m trying to teach my kids about teamwork, community, and putting others before yourself, even for just an hour a week. It’s very important to stay informed and get involved.
I love you guys. I pray all the families we help today know we put a little love and kindness in each box.
