Service Opportunities for Community Groups
Part of being a Community Group is serving together. We’d like for each group to do at least four service projects during your time together. Lori will help you coordinate your projects. Present the list to your group for discussion and let her know what projects you may be interested in.
Lakeside Fall Concert—Sunday afternoon, September 23. We need one group to help Jen with children’s activities (Science object lessons) and whatever else the neighborhood board needs help with!
Neighborlink Projects –things like painting, yard work, etc. Lori will help you choose a project and set it up.
Heartland Food Pantry – all kinds of opportunities to serve here—either during your regular group time or on Sunday evening.
St. Michael’s and Oasis Community Center—cooking/serving dinner as a group and/or helping during their meeting times on Tuesdays.
Lightfest— we need EVERY GROUP to participate in this one. Lori will be working with Liam, Rooted and group leaders to coordinate games, food, and activities for the neighborhood. October 31.
