Reformed Church Nursery School Children Learn Importance of Giving Back PDF Print Email


By Daisy Newmark, Member, Board of Directors, The Reformed Church Nursery School

Jan. 4, 2017:  Throughout the holiday season, The Reformed Church Nursery School (RCNS) has been focused on teaching its students to give back to others and their community. By creating opportunities for the children to participate in charitable services and donation drives, RCNS hopes its students will learn kindness and compassion for all those around them.

In November, Meghan Allen, a board and church member, organized and led a Thanksgiving food basket drive for the Family Services of Westchester. The children took part in this project by shopping with their parents and bringing food items to the school's chapel service. Between money raised and food donated, RCNS was able to provide 73 families with a festive meal for the holiday. Helping to select the food items and prepare the boxes for each family allowed the children to be aware that there are many families less fortunate than their families are.

In the weeks leading up to the Christmas break, RCNS organized other donation drives in which the nursery school children brought in gifts wrapped in white paper as well as pairs of mittens for less fortunate children to receive for Christmas. The donation table and the mitten garland basket, located by the entrance of the school, are constant reminders to all to give back to those in need during the holiday season. The beautiful white gifts, distributed by the Mission Council of The Reformed Church, will go to various local organizations for children in need. The warm mittens will be donated to nearby organizations in need.

In the midst of the busy holiday season and social commitments, the RCNS community hopes that even the youngest of school children are able to experience the importance of giving.
