Preschoolers at First Church Academy in West Hartford held a ‘Thankful Parade’ right before Thanksgiving.
As part of “Thankful Week,” all of the classes (Infants through age 5) at First Church Academy paraded together to bring our collected food items to the West Hartford Food Pantry at Town Hall.
Each child was able to hand deliver an item to the food pantry. First Church Academy is happy to collaborate with church efforts to help families in the community. Teaching young children about needs vs. wants is integral to the growth of a giving spirit.”
