Dear Waldorf Families and friends,
We are currently between two festivals – Martinmas, a festival promoting selflessness and alleviating poverty, and Christmas, a celebration of family and giving.
This is an appropriate time to teach our children that giving can be as important as getting, and a food drive is a very tangible way of doing this.
I recently created a team to participate in the Holiday Challenge benefiting Daily Bread Food Bank. The money we raise will go towards helping those who are hungry in our communities. Last year, there were over 794,000 client visits to Daily Bread’s member agencies.
Most needed items:
- Baby formula & food
- Beans & lentils
- Canned fruits & vegetables
- Canned fish & meat
- Cans of soup or hearty stew
- Dried pasta & tomato sauce
- Macaroni & cheese
- Peanut butter
- Canned, powdered or Tetra Pak cartons of milk
Please give generously online and help our kids help others. Online donations via http://dbfb.convio.net/goto/waldorf
