Being able to give back to our community is very important to myself and my family. We were so excited when we were asked to partner with Jennie-O to help Champions For Kids. Champions For Kids is an organization that helps provide training and resources to communities. A Simple Service Project like the one we are doing can touch so many lives and we are so happy to be able to support Champions For Kids and help our local community.
We decided to take our donation to The Oregon Food Bank as this time of year they are low on donations. With the long summer months and kids not getting hot lunches at school needy families need extra food. We were so thrilled with all the things we were able to buy for $100 including some healthy and tasty Jennie-O products. Since our food bank has a refrigerator we are able to donate items like this so families can create whole meals.
Our girls not only helped us pick out items to donate but they also helped with the actual donation including loading up the car with all of the food.
Our family headed to our local WalMart to pick up items for our donation. You can see our whole shopping trip in our Google+ album. We had an idea of some recipes we knew our kids could make and that would be fun and healthy ways to use Jennie-O products. I was so glad to see such a wide selection of products and we picked up some extra breakfast favorites!
In the end we learned that giving back feels good and it’s a yet another way to help families in our community. You don’t have to have an extra $100 to give back either like we did, there are such simple ways that you can give back. Collect canned foods you don’t plan on using, ask family and friends. I fully support giving to Oregon food banks (anywhere you live) during the long summer months because so many kids need food during those months.
We are very thankful to Champions For Kids for inspiring our family! Find out more about Champions For Kids. You can also find Champions For Kids on Twitter and connect with Champions For Kids on Facebook.
