Re: GOOD DEEDS, 2005-2006

Hi everyone!

My name is Jennifer and I am currently the President of my Student Council and President of my local 4-H club. We do many community service events that benefit a wide variety of people.

The first activity is called make a wish minutes. The first Friday of every month, students have 2 minutes in their homeroom to collect spare change and student donations. We give this money to local charities, and we sometimes hold special Make a Wish minutes when people are affected in our school by a tragedy. In the past 5 years we have raised over $35,000 with $12,000 of it coming from this year, including a $6,000 donation to the Red Cross for Hurricane Katrina.

Another activity that I developed was fun packs. These packs were designed with coloring sheets, games, small toys and other objects that would entertain children who were in the hospital or who had parents who were in the hospital or in surgery. The first year we made 100 packs. The project has now expanded to include adults at t he hospital, children and adults at the local air force base, and this year children and adults affected by the Hurricane Katrina.

Another project we do is nursing home favors. We make a small tray favor for each holiday and deliver them to the nursing home to be put out on the residents dinner trays for that holiday. The list of activities goes on and on and on. If you are looking for something specific just ask…

I would be more than happy to share ideas with you. 🙂
