March has been a busy month with lots of exciting projects and workshops. Here are just some highlights from March!
Shelter Workshop at the Animal Rescue Foundation
Always a hit are our shelter workshops at the Animal Rescue Foundation. Families had a chance to make animals with clay, do some fun animal yoga poses and get a wonderful interactive tour of the shelter with ARF.
Cooking Meals for Operation Dignity
We had the chance to cook meals for Operation Dignity in Oakland. Local families joined us to make stuffed pasta shells and croissants with hazelnut spread. This was the first time we had Youth Leaders from Boys Charity League join us to deliver the meals to the shelter.
AWE workshop at Temple Isaiah Jewish Sunday School
We are doing more and more educational workshops at local institutions. Temple Isaiah in Lafayette welcomed us to facilitate workshop on a Jewish value called Awe. Families had a chance to learn about Awe, practice yoga outdoors and make treasure chests filled with awe-inspiring goodies to take home.
Lamorinda Moms Egg Hunt
Some of our youth leaders, Reagan and Harper, ran an entire station at the Lamorinda Moms Egg Hunt and visited with hundreds of families. Mindful Littles is the exclusive charity partner for Lamorinda Moms, and we are excited to be teaming up for the April 29 backpack event to help Oakland Unified School District.
Emergency Backpacks for the Homeless with White Pony Express
A special event to help to a special nonprofit organization- White Pony Express- which dedicates itself to helping low-income people with a lot of love. We organized an Emergency Backpack project to help provide cold weather supplies and kits that the homeless could use.
