Food drives have long been a favorite community service. You can also collect shoes, clothing, books and any other thing members of your community can use. Can you make these ideas sustainable? Making a drive sustainable is a great idea for an award project. Can you get a permanent drop location set up and get the word out to your community? Can you get volunteers to help man the drop spot?
On our page Earth Day and Outdoor Service Projects, you’ll find that there are many opportunities for community service and activities to make the world a better place. Clean Up, planting and additional ideas and patches can all be found on the Earth Day page. Of course any time of year with nice weather is great for an outdoor service project!
