Once again, the Little Helpers of Fairfield treated our Community Kitchen guests to a heartwarming, tummy filling meal on a chilly Monday! This month’s dinner volunteer group, made up of Laura Horne, Bridget Edwards and Victoria Siewert, plus their eager and helpful children, prepared chili, salad, cornbread and banana pudding. We are so grateful to count on the Little Helpers to provide a meal once a month and to include their children in this volunteer activity.
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.
