10/22   Do Something!
Community Service Activity
Don't wait until your senior year to get in your community service hours!  Today's activities should get students thinking about what they can do this year either alone or as a group (optional) to get their hours and help out the community.

Do something!
A couple of ideas for individuals or groups.

Individual student:
1. Visit dosomething.org to come up with an idea for a community service project.  Students will have to create an account (free) to find out the specific details) 
Start with a search of interests, time, etc.

It is really easy to search by cause or campaign.  
1. Go to "causes"
2. Under "Action Finder" you can choose a time period, a cause and more to narrow down you choices.
Or you can just start with a cause! (animals, education,bullying,etc) and take it from there!

Here are some ideas from the site.
Make catnip toys for local shelters
Collect Halloween Candy for our troops!
Happy baskets for moms and babies

2. Run the idea by Mrs. Littlefield or your advisor.
3. Complete the activity and provide documentation of the hours and the product (if this applies)
4. Check here to join a campaign already in progress.  (IE: sending birthday cards to homeless children)

Advisory group (or partial)
Same as above except pick something that several students would like to do (or even the whole group!).  Advisor documents the hours and activity to turn in to Ms. Littlefield. 
Here are some great ideas for groups that would be easy to document:

Choice Day!
