Pennies of Time is a resource for parents and volunteers to integrate into daily life more service projects and acts of kindness designed to teach kids to be kind, empathetic, and to recognize and respond to community needs.
From easy acts of kindness to service projects to help those in need, Pennies of Time provides the knowledge and support needed for families to create meaningful kindness habits.
Jenn, Busy Mom of 4 says:
You (Pennies of Time) SHOW how kids can help and how we can do this as a family with a busy schedule.
Each time we serve with our kids we are (1) teaching them, (2) helping another, and (3) building meaningful memories that will outlast the rest. Serving and being kind to those around us create powerful experiences that will shape families in positive ways.
