Luke Collects Food for Wylie's Christian Care Center
Earlier this summer Luke took up a collection of non-perishable food for Wylie's Christian Care Center at one of our neighborhood BBQ's. During the summer months, many of the children who would normally get a hot lunch at school, go hungry. This just breaks my heart, so we decided to do something to help!
Luke collected two big boxes of raviolis, peanut butter & jelly and other non-perishable food items. I would so proud of him when we dropped it off that Saturday.
This was such a great lesson for the boys that it's something our family is going to do on a regular basis. We're already discussing when we'll take up our next collection...probably in late summer/early fall.
It really is true that you feel better when you give than when you receive. I am hoping to make many more of these teachable moments with the boys over the years.
