Celebrating Our Connections

Today we were reminded that each of us is called to bring goodness into the world, and by doing so, we bring hope to others. Whether or not we see direct evidence of the love that we share, we remember that each of us is connected.

Kids worked together to create signs asking members to donate to our holiday projects this year.

As we asked kids to think about giving, they thought about what helps bring them hope and inspires generosity. You can add to our board, too!
