Once a year when the children are off school for the summer, I like to create an opportunity for them to learn about giving back and serving others. July of last year, a dozen of kids were eager to help and excited to get involved which speaks volume about their generous hearts. As parents, we hope this will inspire and motivate them to do well and become great successes so that they will be in a position to give back to the community.
Last Wednesday it was hard to get up at 5:00 in the early morning to cook up pots of oatmeal but I couldn't complain when these children were getting up at 6:00 am to get ready to feed over 200 homeless guests. What an amazing sight it is to see our spirited, caring youth stepping up to serve our community.
Thank you everyone for being a part of The Spices Of Life and sharing your good fortune, time and love. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Grace Community Presbyterian Church in Elk Grove, Ca for donating $430 toward this event as well. It means a great deal!
Below are some pictures from the recent breakfast at Friendship Park located inside Loaves and Fishes in Sacramento.
