Preschoolers learn about giving

Students at Community Preschool of First Lutheran Church in Alexandria, along with their families, recently collected food for the Douglas County Outreach Food Shelf and children’s winter outdoor clothes for United Way. Teachers Melisa Schueler (left) and Kelli Risnes used this opportunity to teach the 4 and 5 year olds about sharing and caring for others. All together, they collected 10 large bags of mittens, jackets, boots and more and a trunkful of food. (Contributed)
