Giving at Thanksgiving

Found In: crafts & cooking, service project, thanksgiving

When we study Native Americans, I teach weaving on cardboard. People in the community donate yarn, and we make Christmas ornament strips to sell to parents. We charge fifteen cents per strip, which usually makes us about 50 dollars. We give our profits to the local homeless shelter. They come to the school to accept the check and thank the students in person. Our local paper takes pictures, and people stop my students to tell them how wonderful they are.
