A heart of giving

I am very proud to be a big sister to Haley. She is 9 years old and such a blessing to our family.
I wanted to share what she is doing to help others in this holiday season. She is doing a sock drive for homeless kids. This is a copy of the blog my mom posted. If you feel led to participate please contact her at My Precious Kid.

My daughter Haley (age 9) has been talking about doing a project to help the needy. Her scout group did a project to help kids in 3rd world countries but she wanted to do something to help local kids in need. Then we found out there are 150+ homeless school age children in our city of Hillsboro Oregon.

So she wants to do a SOCK DRIVE. We understand that having new clean dry socks is a gift in the winter months. So we are going to ask friends, family and community to help us collect new socks for kids, teens and adults in need.

If you would like to donate, bring new socks for children, teens, men or women to My Precious Kid in Hillsboro, OR. We are located on the corner of 5th and Baseline across from Hutchins Appliance and Hillsboro Vacuum. We are open from 9 am – 4 pm M-F.

Our local youth group is collecting clean coats (used and new) for the homeless. So if you have coats you want to donate, we can pass them on as well.

Thanks in advanced for helping my daughter learn that it is better to give. And that one person can make a differnce.

This is another story of a young girl reaching out to help others. It is actually a good friend of Haley's from school.

I am so impressed by the giving heart these girls have. I hope to raise my own children to be so caring.
