Miracle Temple Serves Free Thanksgiving Meal
Middle and high school students from Miracle Temple served up a free pre-Thanksgiving meal to folks in east Springfield. The group is learning about homelessness and about helping those who are in need. The kids are also learning about the value of giving back to the community that gives so much to them.
"We actually did Meals on Wheels, where the kids were able to take meals to closed individuals," Miracle Temple Church youth director Candace Silas said. "We also had a wealth-building workshop, teaching them then financial literacy so that they will not be in those positions."
The church partners with the Goodwill Good Guys mentoring program. The organization provides mentors for students in Sangamon County.
The youth director said the students have learned that it is better to give than to receive.
