ROBINSON, Ill. (WTHI) - This time of year, it can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. But as adults, how do we teach our children to be grateful and giving?
Experts say fundraising and volunteering help children understand empathy and become more successful adults.
Students and Lincoln Grade School in Robinson, Illinois are learning how it feels to give. Teachers say it's due to the culture they've created.
The school librarian, Holly Gallagher, is collecting donations to help a school in Texas rebuild their book collection after Hurricane Harvey. Mauriceville Middle School was hit hard with flooding and the library books were ruined.
