Our school is making a difference in the community through our Caring and Giving Food Drive! This year, we donated 480 food items to the Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, which helps support residents in need across 21 counties in Indiana.
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. During the month of November, we host a friendly competition between classes to encourage donations. Kindergarten students then take a field trip to deliver and help unpack the food items. This special trip provides an opportunity for children to see their giving efforts come full circle!
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.
