Stuff The Bus

On the way to school on Friday,MJ was talking about all the damage the Storm Sandy had done, all the houses that he saw on the News "that were broken and the sad people."

I decided it was a good idea to take this and turn this into a teaching moment. One of our local radio stations were hosting an event called Stuff The Bus, the idea behind the event is the community comes together to donate items to fill the bus and the bus load is then donated to food pantries. Items such as canned goods, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, non perishable groceries are what they were looking for.

 So bright and early Saturday morning MJ and I went out so he could buy a few items for this event.  I let him do the shopping for the items, and check them out, and bring them to donate.

The volunteers who donate their time are just awesome!
