Burnsville Transit Holds Food Drive for Ronald McDonald House

The school-age class at New Horizon Academy Burnsville Transit Station held a breakfast food drive for children and families at the Ronald McDonald house at the U of M.

With school out, the children at New Horizon Academy are looking forward to a summer full of fun field trips and many exciting activities! Along with the many outings, the school-agers will focus on a summer of giving back, with our program Caring Beyond the Classroom.

Throughout the summer, teachers will provide children with opportunities to give back to the local community through community learning service projects. Each week as a part of the weekly lesson plan, the children will participate in a Caring Beyond the Classroom project that can be worked on over the course of the week or as part of a long-term project. Service learning encourages collaboration and problem solving, while it promotes social responsibility, positive citizenship, empathy, kindness, and compassion. Caring Beyond the Classroom empowers the children and increases self-confidence; consistent with our company’s mission and philosophy.

“Our school agers were so excited and proud that we packaged 110 breakfast bags for the children and families at the Ronald McDonald House!” said the director of New Horizon Academy Burnsville Transit Station.

On the Road of Parenting - Winter Edition

Teaching Children the Joy of Giving
1. Start a family “giving bank”
Together, decorate a box or a jar and encourage the whole family to contribute to the giving bank. When the bank is full, donate the money to a charity of your choice.

2. Choose a different charity each year and encourage your children to learn about it.
By focusing your giving on a different group every year, you are providing your child with a wonderful educational opportunity to learn about different causes and struggles worldwide.

3. Make giving a holiday tradition.
Have your child pick out a toy and donate it to a child in need this holiday season.

4. Give through your child’s school or your community
From food drives to clothing drives, take advantage of any charity events at your children’s school or throughout your community.

5. Make the holidays a time for giving and receiving
When your child receives new toys this holiday season, encourage them to donate some of their old ones!
