Putting our ethics into action is an integral component of the Ethics for Children program. This year it quickly became apparent that animal welfare is a shared passion among our families, so our first service project centered around that theme.

On the second Sunday of October, we came together at the BSEC building where we made cat, dog and rabbit toys to donate to the Brooklyn Animal Care Center and the Itty Bitty City Kitties rescue. We also made drawings of animals in the shelter to help bring attention to their profiles. (You can still view some of these drawing on the shelter’s Community Kids page: https://www.nycacc.org/get-involved/communitykids)  The special guests of the day were the kittens who were in foster care, growing big enough to move on to their fur-ever homes.
