November POWerful Word – Citizenship – Week 4
Many of us are fortunate enough to have a home to live in, clothes to wear, toys to play with, and food to eat. But not everyone has everything they need to be happy, dry, warm and comfortable. As good citizens of our community, part of showing citizenship is giving to those in need. Think about what you have in your closet at home. Perhaps you have some items that you’ve “grown out of” this year. What kinds of things could you give to children, just like you, who don’t have what they need (i.e. clothes, shoes, toys, sheets, blankets)? Have
you ever given anything to families who are in need? What have you given? How do you think someone would feel if you gave them some of the items in your closet that you don’t need anymore but once loved? We must lead the way as good citizens and think of others– especially those in need! Who will look in their closets thisweek to see what they can give? What will you find?
