Every Child Is Ours. Bins Are Out!
Giving a Little More This Holiday Season
 Every Child is Ours is a na- tional nonprofit which has a goal of providing children in need with food.
Local schools can adopt this national program to benefit their own, local community. Our chapter was adopted by the New- found area elementary schools to benefit the communities of Bristol, New Hampton, Alexan- dria, Hill, Danbury, Bridgewater, Hebron and Groton. There are hundreds of children in our com- munity who go home from school on Fridays and have little or no food over the weekend. During the week, these same children rely on the schools’ breakfast and lunch programs for meals.
Our goal is to send these children home at the end of the school week with bags of healthy food to eat throughout the week- end. No child should be left hun- gry. Local groups supporting Newfound Every Child Is Ours are: Tapply-Thompson Commu- nity Center
Newfound Every Child Is Ours is a local non-profit. We supply food to children in the Newfound Regional School Dis- trict.

The holiday season is a time of giving. The generosity on dis- play during the holiday season may not have an official start date, but the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving Day may be the unofficial beginning of the giv- ing season.
The first Tuesday following American Thanksgiving has been referred to as “Giving Tues- day” since 2012. Today, Giving Tuesday harnesses the generosity of millions of people around the world and helps millions of dol- lars to find its way into the cof- fers of organizations that need it most. Giving Tuesday inspires people to volunteer or give back to causes that are near and dear to their hearts.
Thanks to technology, giving has the capacity to go viral and inspire others to engage in their own charitable efforts. Since its inception, Giving Tuesday has evolved. The event now under- scores how communities can harness the power of people working together to elicit great change.
Even though Giving Tuesday may be the catalyst for charita- ble efforts, it doesn’t need to end there. Here are some seasonally specific ways to give back a little more.
• Pay it forward by treat-
ing someone behind you in the checkout line to coffee, fast food, a candy bar, or whatever else suits you at the time. Perhaps he or she will do the same and keep the generosity going.
• Keep extra dollars in your pocket and be generous to char- ities seeking donations outside of stores. A cup of coffee or hot chocolate goes a long way toward warming up the people manning the collection pots as well.
• Adopt a family who is less fortunate and purchase some gifts on their wish list. Many community centers and churches have contacts for needy families who could use some support this season.
Giving can be the focus of the holiday season, and in ways that are meaningful to the people on the receiving end of the gen- erosity.
