Preschoolers at the Discovery Island Center participated in a lesson on giving and caring. KAIT reported on Dec. 3, 2013, that the preschool collected and donated 1,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas. The young students spent the past two weeks collecting non-perishable and shelf stable foods to help those in need.

With Black Friday and Cyber-Monday kicking off the holiday season, students at Discovery Island Center took to giving and caring for those less fortunate instead of becoming wrapped up in commercialism. A five-year old at the center told KAIT that she was glad to collect food "cause everybody don't have some because they don't have enough money to buy any."

The center’s director said that the students were excited to collect the food to help those who were going hungry. If you are interested in helping the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas, they gladly accept donations of food and cash. You can also donate your time if your cash flow is limited. The food bank supplies backpacks to low-income students in public schools and food boxes to seniors. The also set up one-day food banks in the Northeast Arkansas area. Contact the food bank at 870-932-3663 if you are in need of services or if you want to volunteer your time.
