Miss Kitowicz’s first grade class from Waccamaw Elementary School visited Father Pat’s Kitchen on Thursday, Dec. 19.
Father Pat’s Kitchen, at Precious Blood Catholic Church, provides a free lunch on Wednesdays and Thursdays and a free breakfast on Saturday mornings to anyone in the community who is in need.
The students passed out Christmas ornaments they made and sang Christmas songs while the people ate lunch.
The children mingled with the crowd and put smiles on their faces.
They also helped serve the drinks, meal and dessert.
During this time of the year when “wish lists” are being created, these first graders saw the importance of helping others in need and the benefits derived from giving to others.
Miss Kitowicz wanted her students to see the value in community involvement with the goal of carrying it through the rest of their lives.
