FOOD BANK: Non-perishable foods, such as cases of corn, tuna, and baked beans, were donated by our club members to the food bank at Peachtree United Methodist Church.
SWEET MOMENTS: Teachers perform the important function of educating and empowering the children in our community. As a sign of appreciation, we worked together and made SWEET MOMENTS, a collection of candy treats packages in decorative bundles. These were displayed in an attractive basket and delivered to the teacher break room at a local school.
ADOPT A FAMILY: We adopted a family, identified by the Community Assistance Center, who needed help securing the items on their son’s wish-list for Christmas. We had fun playing the role of Santa’s helper. We were able to provide the family with all the items on their son’s list (scooter, helmet, Legos, and movie tickets) and two Kroger gift cards to help make Christmas dinner special.
FUNKY FOOTWEAR: We collected new “fun/fancy” socks and gave over 100 pair to a local children’s hospital and homeless shelter.
MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY and SECRETS OF A SOCCER MOM: Our attendance at each of these events and similar ones helped to support the efforts of the residents of our community. Opportunities for fellowship were plentiful.
SILENT AUCTION: We had our first try at a silent auction in 2019. This fun event proved to be a winner and we are sure to repeat it. (Maybe you’ll join in during our next auction!) The proceeds generated money to fund many of our other service projects.
TOYS FOR TOTS, OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD, DR. SEUSS BOOKS: Each of these projects allowed us opportunities to serve the children and teenagers in our community. “Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” United Nations Foundation
