Things that need to be done and Needs of kids or teachers at our school.

I could bring in food for the food bank. I could also help teachers out when the need assistance. Students could also get to know other students better. Students can help tutor other students. Help a teacher clean his room. Help a custodian. Healthier and better lunches. Volunteer in the food bank. MAPRIL cleanup. Help Mr. Rediske in the greenhouse.

Things that need to be done in your neighborhood:

Around the school- Litter needs to be picked up and it would be nice if the grass was mowed. Also, flowers and such would look great in the courtyard and front of the computer. Shovel snow, rake leaves, mow your neighbor's lawn.

Things that need to be done in your home, yard, or garage (without being asked):

The side of the hill needs to be derockified and I could go out and look for big rocks in the pasture for landscaping. I guess I could also do dishes, counter tops, floors, etc. in my house all though I'd hate doing it. Sweep out the garage. Vacuum under furniture. Wash your parents' car. Pull weeds. Clean out flower beds.

Things that need to be done in our community:

It's time for flowers and gardens to be planted. Litter control would also help. The Children's Museum could always use a good scrubbing down. Also volunteering at the mission or shelter would be nice. Special Olympics, MAPRIL cleanup, United Way, helping with masses at Church.
