Children earn money to buy food for needy families

Children at a local pre-school have been performing extra chores at home in order to make money to buy food for needy families.

The pre-school class at Primrose School visited Kroger on Thursday an filled grocery bags with non-perishable foods to donate to the Freestore Foodbank.

For the past month, the children have been performing extra chores at home and after combining their earnings, they made a detailed grocery list for the store.

The program is part of Primose's Balanced Learning Curriculum, which helps students understand the value of generosity and creates a hands-on approach to math, nutrition and planning.
