What can you do?

 

There are so many ways you can get involved, girlie! Use these to get ya started or head over to Serve.gov for more projects.

 

1. Grab your gang of gals and go clean up your favorite park.

 

2. Head over to a soup kitchen and serve dinner on your day off.

 

3. Volunteer at a local animal shelter.

 

4. Write a letter to a soldier. Bonus points for a handmade V-Day card!

 

5. Bring your besties to a retirement home and hang with your elders. I bet they can still beat ya at BINGO.

 

6. Start a food drive at your school.

 

7. Tutor struggling students after school.

 

8. Donate your old books to your local library.

 

9. Help an elderly neighbor with errands or chores around the house.

 

10. Participate in a charity race or walk-a-thon

 

11. Knit scarves and hats…and donate them to a homeless shelter.

 

12. Make plans to plan trees and flowers after the winter thaw.

 

13. Host a Teddy Bear toy drive and donate the stuffed animals to a shelter. Local police and fire stations may also distribute donations.

22. Get some friends together and baby sit during school board meetings or community town halls.

25. Send thank-you notes to those who’ve helped you out this past year.
