This is our second year our family has volunteered for San Diego Food Bank's - Run For The Hungry 5K/10K Marathon on Thanksgiving Day. It is really a rewarding experience to be able to see a lot of people sign up for the run which is a wonderful cause that helps raise money for the hungry. It's also fun seeing all the people and their animals dressed up as turkeys. We wake up on Thanksgiving morning at about 4:15 am and leave the house at 5:00 am because we need to check-in at 5:30 am. It's still dark, but there are quite a few people standing in line to volunteer. 

We enjoy spending time and providing our time to help our community. We want our children to see the 'world' in the great eyes of God. We see so many things on the news with fear and negativity. I want to ensure that my family can see the greater part of our communities by doing and being part of the greater good. It not only has opened their eyes, but their hearts. 

Get involved in your community. Check our your local listings of what they offer in your community. If you are in San Diego and would like to volunteer, check out their website:
