Service Learning

December is an important month to remember what we are grateful for, how we are rich in family, friends, and community. We use this time to give back to others.

  • Decorating mini trees can be a fun service project to do as a group and then deliver to family shelters, group homes, or a veterans hospitals.
  • Adopt-a-family as a Circle, either through your local YMCA, the food bank or other charitable organizations in your community.
  • Ring together for the Salvation Army
