You race down the stairs Christmas morning to find your tree overflowing with presents. You jump with joy over all the great presents you have received. But wait, receiving can be great but try and think more about giving this Christmas.

There are so many ways you can serve others this Christmas. You can donate to a charity, make meals for the homeless, or even just give someone else a gift. You can always help others whether it is a big or small act of kindness.

Tanner Ricks, 7th grader, said, “You can find service anywhere if you look close enough.” Service can be just the small acts of kindness you show so it can be shown anywhere. It is very important because it makes us happy and the receiver of the service happy.

“Service is important because it is a chance to give to others that are not as fortunate as us,” said Eden Rodriguez, 7th grader. It helps us because we learn to put others before ourselves. There so many different ways you can give to others.  

Ella Muir, 7th grader, said, “I went to the Beehive Home and visited someone.” She decided to give this Christmas and so can you.

Here are a few links to different websites where you can find different places to serve this Christmas.   https://www.mormon.org/?cid=HP_FR_25-11-2016_dMIS_fmorg_xLIDyL1-A_

“Service makes me feel thankful for what I have,” said Clarissa Rollins, 7th grader. Helping others makes you feel very happy because you know that you are doing the right thing.

This Christmas season take the time to look for ways to do service. Instead of daydreaming of your new presents, think about the ways you can help out.
