Watch Elmo learn about different ways to help others in his community.
There are plenty of ways kids can help others without spending money. They can donate some of the money they save, or they can give away outgrown, gently used clothes and toys. They can also share their time and talents. Find opportunities in your community, such as volunteering together at a local park for a cleanup day, collecting food for a food drive, or donating blankets to animal shelters.
