 Service Project Ideas

It is important for our children to realize that there are many people in this world that are less fortunate than they are and that they need to help those in need. Through the years with my involvement with sports teams, scouts and school events we came up with some cute ideas for service projects which are listed below.

Cold Weather Bags

Purchase draw string laundry bags from the Dollar store.
Have your group donate any type of item that can be helpful to a homeless person in the cold weather.

Hats and Gloves

Socks Soap
Hand Sanitizer Tissues (individual packs)
 Plastic Spoons Cups
Cough Drops Protein Bars
Oatmeal Ramen Noodle Soup
Hot Chocolate Coffee Mate
Instant Coffee packets Sugar Packets

Fill the laundry bags with the items above and then donate them to a local shelter to hand out to the homeless.

Bedtime Packet

Create slips of paper -  blue for boys/ pink for girls.  On each paper put the child's pajama size, age and slipper size.  Hand out the papers and have all individuals purchase the items on the list in the proper size as well as an age appropriate book for bedtime reading and a pillow case.   Once all items are collected create packets by placing the items in the pillow case,  close with a ribbon and attach the child's name.  Contact social workers in your school district and have them donate them to needy families in the area.

Beauty Boxes

Collect items and create boxes to donate to the local Battered Women's Shelter.  Include health and beauty items.

Shampoo and Conditioner

Mascara, Eye Shadow, Blush, Lipstick

Q tips

Nail Polish and Polish Remover

Powder Deodorant
Perfume Bubble Bath
Body Lotion Soap
Hand Sanitizer Feminine Products

Birthday Baskets

Purchase a large basket and fill it with all the items needed for a birthday party.  Donate the baskets to the social worker at the local elementary school to give to a family in need.  Include party and gift items:

Invitations Plates, Forks, Cups
Table Cover Piņata filled with candy
Cake Mix and Frosting Cupcake or cake pan
Snacks: pretzels, chips, ice cream Juice Boxes

Party favors and Party favor bags

Package of balloons
Presents for the Birthday boy or girl  

Halloween Adventure Packs

Using large trick or treat bags or decorated pillow cases create an adventure pack that contains all the makings for a Halloween Party.  Contact the adventure site and let them know what you are doing and ask for donations!!

Costumes or gift card for a local Halloween shop Make up
Plastic spiders Treat Bags with candy
Decorations for the home Small pumpkins
Black and orange crepe paper Halloween cookies
Orange Gatorade Paper products
Snacks: pretzels, cheese curls, Halloween candy Vouchers for a Halloween Adventure Site in your area for the entire family.

Sports Mania

Sponsor a inter-city sports teamYou can do a coin drop day to collect money and then donate a check to the team.  A second option is to purchase equipment and donate it.  For instance for a soccer team donate cleats, shin guards, balls and socks.

Dress for Success

Help out battered women that are trying to make it on their own.  They will need clothes for job interviews and work.  Collect gently used "professional" clothing (blouses, shirts, dress pants, sweaters), shoes, handbags, and accessories. Create matching outfits based on colors, size and style and donate to a local women's shelter.

Tis the Season

There are a number of service project ideas for the holidays that donate presents and food to families in need.  So be different and creative -- donate the Christmas Tree.  Talk to a local tree farm to negotiate a discounted price.  Do a coin drop or bake sale to raise money for the trees.  Ask for donations of tree lights, and Christmas tree ornamentsDon't forget the star or angel for the top.  Set guidelines (i.e. specific color scheme) for ornaments so that you will have enough of matching items to decorate a tree.  Based on decorations collected purchase the correct size and number of trees.  Contact your local church to donate to families in need.

Baby Boxes

Collect NEW baby items such as diapers, wipes, formula, nursing items, bottles, toys, clothing, bibs, pacifiers, bowls, spoons, blankets, bath wash, shampoo, towels and more.  Decorate cardboard boxes in pink and blue.  Fill and donate to local agencies for unwed mothers.

Create a Hospital Fun Box.  

Start with a Tupperware carton with a lid.  Decorate it with colorful letters to say Fun Box.   Listed below are some ideas that may interest you.  Group items based on age and donate to the local Children's hospital.
Different types of paper (white, construction, card stock, foam) Writing tools (  crayons, colored pencils, markers)
Crayola hardening clay Old magazines
Ribbon A variety of colors of Felt  or scrapes of material
Scissors and a glue stick Deck of cards
Legos or blocks Barbie dolls and clothes/Action Figures
Stickers Journal
Craft items (pom poms, pipe cleaners, squggly eyes) Puzzles

You may want to also include a pair of fancy footwear -- "Get Well Socks",  and a decorated cup and plate-- "Get Better Cup and Plate".
