Be thankful and take this opportunity to give back!

What are you thankful for today? There is so much to be thankful for that we take for granted or we just don’t take the time to appreciate what we have. I know that am beyond thankful for my family. The past four and a half years have been difficult at times but with their guidance and support that they have given me I will be graduating college in a few weeks.

Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner we would like for you to take this time to reflect on the ways that you have volunteered to make an impact in your community. We here at AMF are so thankful for all the students that are getting involved in Service Challenge to make a difference in their community. During the holiday season we challenge you to step out of the comfort of your project and volunteer in your community in any way you think your community needs help. If you aren’t sure of what you can do, it’s okay we are here to help! I’ve listed a few ideas hoping that you take this opportunity to give back to your community.

Volunteer Ideas:

  • Collect Teddy Bears and Board Games to donate to the Children’s Hospital
  • Volunteer at the Drop Inn Center that is located downtown Cincinnati
  • Clean-up around your school
  • Clothing/coat drive
  • Collecting can-goods

This is a chance to improve your community, to give back, and to help others that are in need! If you have already volunteered and done something to make a difference or know of a way for someone to give back, please comment below and share your experience with us so we can share your story with others.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter! Today we are going on our Second Service Challenge Tour of the year visiting Turpin High School to see their Service Challenge project in action. Lastly, through our blog post we will be announcing future tour dates, stay-tuned to find out if we will be visiting your school this year.
