Preschoolers learn the joy of Christmas giving

GRIFFITH preschoolers were revelling in the satisfaction of giving as they donated a box full of food to the less fortunate.

The box full of non-perishables was so heavy it took two people to lift it in to the Salvation Army volunteer's car.

Max Smith from the Salvation Army thanked Griffith Preschool for the kind donation and said he was thrilled the children were learning the joy of charity.

"It is a very kind donation and it is great to see the children so excited to share gifts," Mr Smith said.

"No one should go without and it is fantastic for the children to ask themselves, why not share?

"We have already out our feelers around the place and we'll make up a list to try and share the food as fairly as possible."

Griffith Preschool teacher, Renee Debenetti, said the whole preschool community got behind the initiative.

"The children and their families were asked to bring in non-perishables for people who were needier than themselves," she said.

"We've been talking to the kids a lot about giving and they have been very enthusiastic about it over the last few weeks."
