Looking for a way for the whole family to participate in helping those in need this advent season? While donations to the food pantry are appreciated throughout the year, the season of advent always brings to mind the needs of others. Check out this “reverse advent calendar” idea – collecting a box full of food to donate to the pantry, one item each day of December. Feel free to use THIS LIST or create your own – the idea is to involve your family in an activity that will bless others! This could also be a great idea to use throughout the year! Also, maybe consider adding some household products to your list like dish soap, toilet paper, or diapers, as household items are always greatly in need!
