My children and I always do a community service project in December. We sort toys that go to local hospitals or to children in need. This year, I joined a women’s group, the Classy Living Society—pooling our talents, our resources, and our time to serve others. Last spring, we collected 1,200 pairs of socks for a local homeless shelter. Socks are the most needed and least donated item. We also visit nursing homes, do the residents’ hair and play bingo. I want my kids to see how working with others can make an even bigger difference.
