Easy family service activity

Gordon B. Hinckley said, "The happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others." I have wanted to impress upon my children the importance of looking for opportunities to serve. This day was an easy and very rewarding activity. We went through all of our old towels and baby blankets (how in the world did we end up with so many soft baby blankets?!) and washed them, then delivered them to our local animal shelter. 

They were so grateful for the baby blankets because they are softer and not many people donate soft blankets. When this sweet employee told us that the baby blankets get used for the kittens and puppies, my kids just about died with excitement!

She even let us go and see the 2-day old kittens! 

As we left, I asked them how they felt inside knowing they just helped some sad little animals? All of them said it made them so happy to give their soft blankets to poor little animals!
