Community Service

 It's easy to participate in community service activities during the school year when someone is organizing them. What about during the summer?  Is there anything you and your family participates in to support your community?

Not really. We only have one month together during the summer due to the joint custody so we try to make the most of our time together.

We help at our local children's home.

Sad to say we don't help out during the summer.

We do most of our community things during the summer. We help the elderly neighbors clean up their yards, go to the nursing home, and help at our church. We have more time for those things during the summer months.

We pick up pop cans when we walk. My son likes going to nursing home and teaching the wii. His 4H club also  pick up trash and plays bingo at the nursing home.

My teen & I are volunteering at the food bank (and loving it), but my tween is not doing community service activities at this time.

We help with a city wide clean up day during the summer.

Our family just visits rest homes and passes out stuffed animals we have collected over time. The way I see community service is I do not wait for a school or organization to set something up ,,, we see a need and we go do it. Sometimes we have simply gone to the park and picked up trash. You can get creative.
