Grades 1-3 Giving Project

In first-third grade GodZone, children will be learning the phrase we give, because we have.  As we focus on different giving highlights throughout the year, children will learn about how their offering supports others, from right within our community to the other side of the globe!!

Throughout the month of January, first-third grade will be collecting food items to donate to Our Daily Bread Food Shelf.  Children are invited to bring in non-perishable  “noodle-themed” foods (pasta noodles, pasta sauce, mac n cheese, Hamburger Helper, noodle soup, etc.).

Crews at each hour will compete against each other to see who can bring in the most! The winning hour will get to play a large group game in Tool Time! This food drive will run January 7 - February 11.

Shepherd of the Valley partners with 360 Communities to operate Our Daily Bread Food Shelf. The food shelf is entirely dependent on donations of non-perishable food and monetary donations to purchase produce and other groceries. Many families in our community are served through the food shelf.
