Kindergarten Students Distribute Jesus Bags
Kindergartners worked hard at assembling their Jesus Bags, or hygiene bags, to distribute this Christmas season. Many items including personal hygiene items, food, water, Bibles, and warm gloves and hats were each put into large bags that have been collected by the class members over the last month. The bags are to be distributed to a person in need by the student and their family. Mrs. Stackhouse, Mrs. Emery, and Mrs. Thomas each reported that their students were enthusiastic about helping others in need.
"Especially with kindergarten, gifts at Christmas are a big deal, so it's hopefully teaching them to think of others first," Mrs. Stackhouse said. "I love their enthusiasm, and they're looking for people to bless." Several of the kindergartners said they understood the significance of the bags. "I've seen a couple people on the streets, but I didn't have a bag, and now we're making these bags to give them," said Isabelle Morris, 5. Said Molly Bender, 5: "We get to help people who don't have money or Bibles or food."
Thanks Kindergarten students for sharing the Light of the world with others.
