Service Learning

February is a fun month to give back together!

  • Work as a team to make Valentine's Day cards and treats for those who might not otherwise get one! Brighten the day of seniors, the homeless, or your bus driver!
  • Give the gift of hugs! Stuffed Animals for Emergencies is a non-profit organization that gives stuffed toys to kids in crisis situations. Host a stuffed animal drive at your local Y, in your school or church to serve these great charities.
