CPC Chrystie Street Raises $1,400 in Rice Bowl Campaign


The kids at CPC Chrystie Street School Age Child Care Center ended 2019 by giving back. They participated in a Rice Bowls campaign to collect money to provide food for children living in 58 home orphanages in nine countries. Each participant was given a small plastic rice bowl. They asked their friends, families, and other adults to donate. The campaign culminated before Christmas with a fun activity, where they cracked open their bowls. Together, the kids and teachers collected more than $1,400. Based on Rice Bowl's "Mealify"-er, the amount will help provide 4,200 delicious meals in the orphanages.

The kids learned compassion and realized that they can play a small part in something big. One kindergartener donated $40 of his own money! When his mom asked him why, he replied, "I want to help give food to the other children who don't have food."
