Catching Joy and Boston College Childrens Center (BCCC) partnered to do a holiday food drive for the Greater Boston Food Bank. This community service project was integrated into the curriculum as the students created a grocery store in their classroom. The children made posters and decorated the collection boxes. They sorted and counted the cans and boxes of food. The children felt ownership of their food drive and understood the meaning of donating food to needy families. At a later date, we will organize an event to allow a small group of kids to tour and volunteer on site at the Greater Boston Food Bank.
