Spring Into Service

Spring is approaching, which means warmer weather, longer days, and more opportunities to help those in need. Below are some service-based ideas to help kick off Springtime. Because not only do warmer days feel good, serving others brings extra warmth to your heart!

 

Spring Service Ideas

1. Plant a Garden - Add a splash of color to the school grounds, or ask a local gardening group whether they know of other areas that could use the help.

2. Community Trails Clean Up - Reach out to town or city officials about which local trails could use some attention, and ask friends to come prepared to do some weeding, raking, and trash pickup.

3. Playground Housekeeping - See whether your school playground could use a spruce-up (painting, cleaning, planting, etc.). If not, ask the local parks department whether it needs volunteers for parks projects.

4. Summer Clothing Drive - Work with a local organization to donate warmer weather clothes to those in need. We are unable to accept clothing at this time, but we suggest our partner Friendship House Clothing Bank. Click the button below for more details.

5. Yard Cleanup for Neighbors - Pitch in to do tasks for neighbors who can’t do them themselves, like folks who are ill, elderly, or busy with work or childcare.
 
6. Read to Others - With the beautiful weather, more and more people will be spending their time outdoors enjoying the sunshine. Use this as an opportunity to plan or do an impromptu outdoor reading session for children, friends, family, or random samaritans in the community.

Highmark Health Walk is less than 3 Months Away!
Saturday, June 11th, 2022

What is the Highmark Health Walk?
The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is an annual fundraising walk that benefits local health and human service agencies.
The primary goal of the walk is to help participating organizations raise money for their individual missions. One hundred percent of the funds raised through this event go directly back to the participating organizations, as Highmark underwrites all the associated costs of the event.

How do I sign up? By visiting our page -> Register To Walk! 

(Registration is free!)

Can I Form a Walk Team?
Yes! Form a team & walk with your friends, neighbors, congregants, etc.! This is a great opportunity to get outside and see some familiar faces we haven't seen in a while due to the pandemic. Take pictures, document your walk, and have fun!

Benefits of donating:
Register as a walker & Donate $30 = a walk t-shirt!
Register as a walker & Donate $50 = a raffle ticket

Donating isn’t a requirement to participate! You can join a team or walk individually in support of FP!

Children Experiencing Homelessness
No Child Should Ever Be Homeless

The facts about homelessness are staggering ... but acknowledging the depth of the problem is the first step in fixing it.
57% of homeless kids spend at least one day every month without food.
The need for affordable housing and accessible shelter for American families is always strong. To learn more about how you can help feed those in need visit familypromisede.org/get-involved
