Do Good Projects
Our young leaders have been doing good things since 2013. Along with giving back to their community and the world, they have developed leadership skills and valuable tools to help them on their lifes' journeys. Here are just some of the meaningful projects our Do-Gooders have led that have made a difference. Watch for more examples to come!
Cozy Coats was started by Lola and Chloe, two elementary school-age sisters who have made it a tradition to hand out coats to the homeless on Christmas morning. The hard work of Lola and Chloe paid off the Christmas they passed out their 500 donated coats to homeless shelters and the people who needed them most. The temperature of -2° F made passing out the coats tough work, but even more meaningful.
Jars for Education
One of our Do-Gooders, Azaya, led this project! We packed jars full of candies and sweets for people to give as gifts to their teachers for the holidays. All the funds raised from these jars goes right to helping an organization which helps put girls through school in Ethiopia. The Do Good Things group met at Aurora Senior Living Center and packed up the amazing jars. We had a great time and raised a lot of money.
Teaming Up for Teams
Do Good Things met at the Hopkins Elks Lodge to bag backpacks for a non-profit called Teaming Up for Teens. We bagged the backpacks with basic health and hygiene products so the bags can be distributed to homeless or at risk teens around the southwest Minneapolis area. The bags also included cards with hopeful quotes on them as well as information for the recipient.
