Teaching our children to be part of the solution!

The goal of Big Lessons for Little People is to create teachable moments and make children and families part of the greater good. Through these programs, we hope to spark a lifelong commitment to helping others.

Our flagship Big Lessons for Little People programs are:

TLC Food Distribution Center

A TLC Little Free Pantry is located on the B’nai Torah campus. Our children frequently visit the pantry to fill it with donated items, and they learn and understand the importance of helping those in need.

The ECC Giving GardenĀ 

Adjacent to our playground is our Giving Garden, through which we help feed the hungry and spread cheer and sunshine. Our children tend to this garden regularly, to grow fruits and vegetables to donate and flowers to deliver to senior living facilities, hospitals, or other local organizations.

Thanksgiving and Feeding the Hungry

During the Thanksgiving Holiday, we do an extensive food drive, working with B’nai Torah’s Tzedakah, Learning and Chesed (TLC) program to help combat hunger in our communities.
