At a Montco Pre-School, Early Lessons In Helping Others

By Brad Segall

KING of PRUSSIA, Pa. (CBS) — Children at the Goddard School in King of Prussia did something special for Mother’s Day: they donated essential items to a local shelter to help moms and kids who can’t be home this weekend.

One by one, the students carried the donated items — including paper towels, toilet paper, and soap — to a waiting van.  The supplies are going to Laurel House, a Montgomery County shelter assisting women and children in crisis.

“I love children — it creates an awareness for them so they can be aware of the good things they can do in the world for the people that need it,” says Amanda Kelley, a children’s advocate for Laurel House.

c owner of the school, says they try to teach the kids to be aware of the world around them by getting involved in a lot of community service.

“We try to teach the kids that not all children are as lucky as they are — to have a house, a safe place to go every night — so it’s nice for them to learn that giving back is a good thing.”
