BLUEBERRY AMBASSADOR MOMENTS
Flint Neithercut Elementary, coordinator Paula Gibson
When I was at the grocery store, there was an older lady with a lot of groceries. There was nobody there to help her so I asked if I could help her. Then I helped her put her groceries in the car. She offered to give me some money, but I said no I want you to take the Blueberry Card. I made her day.
When I was going sledding, this lady was having trouble with her sled. She couldn’t get it out of her car because the wind was blowing hard. I went over to help her because she was all alone. Then she didn’t know how to sled so I helped her.
My friend’s mom lost her phone, so we decided to help her look for it in the snow. All along, we were standing on it. She felt great because she didn’t need to buy new one.
On Monday, I went to the Dort Federal Center to help pack food for families so they can eat for a month and we packed over a thousand meals for their homes. Some people didn’t have any food at home. They gave us boxes to put the food in. We put 36 meals in each box, and we packed over 900 boxes. They felt great that we helped them. I feel good being a Blueberry Ambassador because it helps me do kind stuff and not be mean.
I went to Golden Corral. There were two older ladies. I held the door for them. They walked by the table and asked my momma if I was her daughter. My mom said yes. They told her that I was going to grow into a wonderful young lady.
My mom and I packed little bags and gave them to the crossing guards. They were happy. A few weeks later, one of the ladies gave me a little Christmas bag when she saw me the next time.
Me and my friends went to the mall and there was a woman who owned the store. I took one of her shopping carts back into the store for her. She was grateful and said thank you. I like helping people and being a Blueberry Ambassador because it’s fun.
We went caroling so we greeted the people. We sang three songs. We sang Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Jingle Bells, and Carol of the Bells. When we got done, we knew the older people were really entertained because of the smiles on their faces. They gave us compliments and asked us to come back. I felt excited to go caroling and make people happy.
I helped an elderly lady put her groceries in her trunk because she was struggling. When I was passing by, I asked my mom if I could help and she said yes. I asked the lady if I could help and she agreed. I started loading the groceries into the trunk. After I helped her put the stuff in her trunk, she tried to give me money, but I refused. I just walked away while feeling happy.
I helped my neighbor shovel his driveway. He said thank you for helping me because I really needed help shoveling the driveway.
I helped my mom take care of my brothers and clean and cook at the house because she really needed a lot of help with all of the stuff she was doing. She was really happy because she had so much to do that day. I feel happy that I am going around helping other people with their stuff because it helps other people.
I went to my neighbor’s house because he had so much snow and leaves. I shoveled the snow and picked up the leaves and when he got back, he thanked me. I gave him the Blueberry Card and then explained how to be a Blueberry.
We had a lot of dishes and our house needed to be cleaned. Everyone was asleep so I started cleaning. I cleaned the basement and everything. It feels nice to be a Blueberry because we get to help people and they help people, and everyone feels great!
I went to the nursing home with my mom. At first when I got there, I was bored. After they ate dinner, I helped wash dishes. An older lady was still eating so when she got done, I asked her how it was. She said it would be great if I could play my board games. I asked what was stopping her and she said she had to fold her clothes. I asked if I could help and I did. Luckily, I had the Blueberry Cards in the card. I grabbed one and gave it to her.
I went caroling for the nursing home. It made me enjoy singing for them. Sometimes, they don’t get a lot of visitors. It put a smile on all of their faces.
I helped fix my step brother’s bike. He went up this hill and his bike broke. He popped his tires and snapped his chain. I volunteered to give him a chain. He was happy and I was even happier. Being a Blueberry makes me feel good because I know I’m doing something for the community.
One day in December, my class went caroling. We sang three songs. Carol of the Bells, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Jingle Bells. I think the people liked it because it didn’t seem like they get much cheer. I liked it because we went to Rose Haven and I felt happy because we got to sing songs.
We went caroling. I felt like I did something good and I was proud of myself. I was a little disappointed because it was such a small group because I know everyone would have enjoyed it.

I asked my mom if I could go to Five Below. I asked her for money to buy whatever I want. We walked in and I got an air pods case and phone case. A little girl wanted something and her mom couldn’t get it. I paid for her doll. She said thank you. I felt great because I did something good and felt proud of myself for helping out.
