Marlee Toombs, in Ronda Foster’s 1st grade class at Assumption School, Spokane, shows a Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowl from this year’s Lenten season. Rice Bowls are used to collect special Lenten donations, which are then utilized for CRS ministry efforts around the world. Marlee’s teacher and parents report that she asked for extra chores at home and at her grandparents’ house, including washing dishes, sweeping the floors, and watching her little brother, with money earned going into her Rice Bowl. She also donated money she received for her birthday. Marlee says she gave the money to “help people around the world, so that they can be alive.” (IR photo courtesy of Catholic Charities)
