The moms in the co-op we belong to take turns organizing field trips that families can sign up for. Recently I organized a field trip to Here's Life Inner City to put together gospel bead bracelets for an outreach called Boxes of Love. Here's Life coordinates volunteers who pack boxes of food at Thanksgiving that will be distributed by urban churches to people in their neighborhoods. Along with the food, the bracelets are put in the boxes as a way for those delivering the boxes to share the gospel. The kids had a good time putting the bracelets together, and got an opportunity to have a part in helping families in need.
