COMMUNITY HELPERS

 

COMMUNITY HELPERS

Community Helpers cover many groups of people who help in our neighborhoods and community. A community can be small with only a few buildings and homes or large with many buildings and homes. The people in the community help each other by offering goods and services. Come learn and have fun with these community helpers preschool activities.
