Giving pause to celebrate Thanksgiving a little early, the Fairfield chapter of Little Helpers
made Thanksgiving staples the highlight of its monthly meal for our Community Kitchen guests. Earlier this week, Little Helpers members Amy Bowley, Beth Nori, Victoria Siewert, Carrie Curtin and their gaggle of really little helpers, gathered to prepare turkey and gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, salad and mini apple pies. Many thanks to these Little Helpers for preparing a very special meal to feed our neighbors in need.
Little Helpers has been helping children help others since December 2010. The family volunteer group holds monthly service projects for children of all ages. The program is designed to help young people understand the value of volunteering, recognize the blessings in their lives, broaden their community perspective and feel the sense of accomplishment received from lending a helping hand. The ultimate goal of the program is to raise confident children who see giving back to the community as a normal aspect of their lives. Little Helpers was created in Memphis, but today has chapters across the country. If you’re interested in joining the Fairfield Chapter, please contact Jessica Vartughian here.
