Giving Back at Thanksgiving

How do you show 14 eight year olds how to appreciate what they have?  Talk to them about what they are thankful for and then about what other people are sometimes lacking in life.  My Brownie girls helped make 14 centerpieces to donate to our local food bank to make some one else's Thanksgiving a little more special.    Here are the baskets they made:

Each centerpiece was made on a cardboard round that fit into the basket.  When the holiday is over the receipient still has a cute basket and a centerpiece for next year or a scarecrow and a candle to make a new one.
We hope they are loved and that they brighten someone's holiday!
I am thankful for my Brownies and their big hearts!

Check out your local food bank and see how you can help.. they accept donations and volunteers all year round!
