The holiday season is a time for giving thanks and giving back. Now is the perfect time of year to teach children the importance of community service and nurture the spirit of giving. Many youth groups including 4-H, Boy and Girl Scouts, school clubs and church youth groups conduct community service projects, but it’s important to also do community service as a family.
Start by choosing a charity in your own community. Then talk to the youth about the kinds of charities they would like to support.
