Family Service Fair Inspires Kids to Care in New Ways

 My 10-year-old was shocked to learn there are teenagers who are homeless. Both brothers worked hard to fill cups of laundry detergent.

"I attended the Doing Good Together event in Bloomington [MN] this weekend. My boys and I truly enjoyed it. My 10-year-old was inspired to help homeless teenagers. He kept filling containers of single-serve laundry detergent. I think he single-handily filled all of the cups next to him! (My 8-year-old is on the other side filling the containers.) Both enjoyed the event, and we engaged in rich conversations about helping those in need. They both felt empowered to make a difference in the lives of others."

 Brothers worked together to decorate grocery bags which will hold items for the local food pantry.
