Taylor Berube turned 11 years old on September 28th and asked her mom if she could have a giveback party instead receiving gifts as she normally would.
When Taylor’s mom April Berube asked her why she wanted to do this, Taylor said ”I look at people that don’t have what I have and I get sad and want to help them”.
Her mom said that it would take some planning but she could do it. Taylor’s invite said that in lieu of gifts, please help her give back by donating toiletries, non perishable food items and gently used coats, hats, mittens and scarves.
The invite was sent out to 16 girls. Soon the boys heard about this and wanted to help out too so they joined in. Taylor’s give back party took place on October 15th.
While the donations were coming in, the kids were kept busy by making gift bags and cooking. They made 20 Bless You bags,10 for women and 10 for men which were appropriately filled with needed items along with an inspirational note signed by everyone.
These were donated to Brian’s Angels. They also made 2 trays of pasta with meat sauce and cheese which was given to St. Vincent DePaul’s.
On October 18 a truck and car full of the items collected was donated to Meals For The Needy, a ministry of Zion Lutheran Church.
