Kids in Service NH Kids is a great way for children ages 0-11 and their parents to help serve their community in age appropriate ways. We meet once a month, there is no fee to join and no commitment (please come when you can).
Every other month Kids in Service NH Kids meet at the local nursing home for a seasonal party. These festive parties are great way for the children and seniors to interact. We sing songs, play games and work on crafts.
On the opposite months, the group meets to work on age appropriate service projects. Over the past 5 years we have painted flower pots for hospice patients, made cat nip socks for the animal shelter, made dignity bags for the homeless, sent gift bags to orphans in Honduras, ran a food drive, made birthday boxes and so much more. These meetings start off with a story book and a quick lesson about our theme of the year. This year our theme is EMPATHY. We end our meetings with a circle of gratitude and by reciting our Kids in Service pledge.
Kids earn a service bead for their Kids in Service name necklace for every project they complete. They love to see their colorful beads grow as they work to help others.
We have lots of other ways for families to earn service beads on their own time. We have our Adopt a Grandparent program at the nursing home, Project Appreciation, The Brown Bag Delivery Project and Park Clean Ups.
