A few weeks ago, the kindergarten class began collecting baby food. The service project was introduced by sharing with the students about the needs of the community, the role that the food pantry plays in serving the community, and what it means to give generously. We were delighted to see the children take an immediate interest. Our collection continues to grow everyday. We are pleased to hear of all the jobs and chores children are doing to earn baby food jars.
Counting baby food jars has been a great way to learn our base ten system. Each day that we count baby food we document our count on the white board by hundreds, tens, and extras.
As of today, we have collected 533 jars!
As our collection grows, we place crates of 100 on the shelf in the hallway. We proudly display our crates of 100 for other classes to see!
We are thankful for the generosity of the Mustard Seed community and the opportunity to share the joy of serving with the kindergarten class. Please help us as we strive to reach our goal of collecting 1,000 jars!
