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 kicked off the food drive in a special way. We provided families at our school with shopping lists and brown bags to fill with Thanksgiving food items and decorate with their children. Our Kindergarten students then helped pack each bag to serve as a Thanksgiving meal for a family in need.
Together, we were able to donate the equivalent of 600 Thanksgiving dinners! Kindergarteners delivered the bags to Denton County Friends of the Family, an organization that provides support to women and families who are victims of violence, giving families the opportunity to cook and enjoy delicious Thanksgiving meals together.
At Primrose, we believe who children become is as important as what they know. This special effort is just one example of how we nurture important character traits and help instill compassion and a desire to give back in children.
