Kids from some Buzz families including the Davis, Grandy, Hogan, Durham, Cavanaugh families gathered in March at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church to help make meals for hungry Houstonians.
Before social distancing, a few Memorial families, including the Davis, Grandy, Hogan, Durham, Cavanaugh families, gathered at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church to make meals for homeless men and women. The event was sponsored through local nonprofit Little Lights Houston, where young children can sign up for volunteer opportunities. The kids and their parents worked to make dozens of meals. Leading up to Covid-19, Little Lights volunteers gathered every month at the church to pack sack lunches. In-person volunteer events are on hold for now, but there are ways kids can help out despite the pandemic. For example, Little Lights is starting a pen pal program with The Treemont Retirement Community. For more, see “Teaching Kids about Volunteering” by Annie McQueen.
