    How nice, Mary. I am sure the kids will be excited to help when you explain how it works. Since they still get to give their beloved teacher s gift, it sounds great. I just feel like reaching out should be a part of Christmas.

    Our children bring canned goods to me and I ooooh an Ahhhhh over them and thank the student profusely. As we go to lunch, we take our bag of canned goods to the lobby of our school and place them in a huge box designated for canned food donations. At the end of the day, local business men come and get the box. The items are divided and sent to needy families who are not yet recieving food stamps. Local merchants pitch in with turkeys, sweet potatoes ,bread and several other perishable items.

    After lunch, each of my students makes me a Christmas card to decorate my dining room arched door at home.(ADORABLE) Everyone is happy(even our poorest child can bring a can of food....) and I am not stuck with yet another waterball or scarf!
