11-20-2015 - 2015 Thanksgiving Day: It is better to give than to receive
2015 Thanksgiving Day
It Is Better To Give Than To Receive
Do you remember the canned food drives throughout our elementary school years? I do. A Christmas Tree was set up in the cafeteria surrounded by all the generous donations. My mom's contribution was always Canned Beets. Not my favorite then, but how I love them now! Food drives are part of a students' "service learning". It is a noble goal to teach kids that not everyone has it so well, that the old saying is right: It is better to give than to receive. When we have our biggest meal of the year on Thanksgiving Day, give "Thanks" for your blessings but don't forget the less fortunate. Try to help when and where you can.
