Kids give to kids in need

| 23/12/2009

(CNS): The young members of the Church of God Chapel Children’s Choir demonstrated they were thinking about others this weekend when they presented some toys to the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for its young clients in need, on Sunday (6 December)> The toys were handed over by the choir’s director, Carol Mascarenhas to the DCFS’ Community Development Coordinator Zemrie Thompson following the children’s performance of this year’s musical The Best Christmas Present Ever; Happy Birthday Jesus at the Family Life Centre. 

Mascarenhas explained that in the spirit of the season, each child on the 64-member choir was asked to contribute a gift for a child.    “We want to teach them early on that it is better to give than to receive and always to reach out to those less fortunate than they are,” she said.

Thompson thanked the children, applauding them for both the night’s performance and their generous gifts. “Your toys will help to bring Christmas cheer when they are distributed to our young clients in the districts,” she added.
