Our school is making a difference in the community through our Caring and Giving Food Drive! As one of our annual Primrose Promise℠ Giving Events, the Caring and Giving Food Drive provides an opportunity for children to learn the joy of giving without expecting firsthand.
This year, we teamed up with the Brightcross Organization to collect food items for senior citizens at the Chesapeake Crossing Seniors Community. We are so thankful for our Primrose families and staff who helped assemble the care packages and provide support. Together, we donated 120 care packages! Our giving efforts were even featured in the news – click here to watch the video.
During the month of November, families brought in specific Food Drive items and Kindergarten students practice responsibility by earning money for the food items through age-appropriate chores at home. The children then use math, nutrition and planning skills in a hands-on way by counting their money and learning about healthy meals!
At Primrose, we believe who children become is as important as what they know. The Caring and Giving Food Drive is just one example of how we nurture important character traits and help instill compassion and a desire to give back in children.
