Being of Service

On Wednesday my girls helped make a pot of tater soup for the Occupy folks. We talked about the idea behind Occupy and why we were helping them. Then on Thursday we began working on our Family Fun basket for the UUCNC Arabian Nights Goods and Services auction.
We talked about how we can be of service to others, and help our community. Our next goal will be to collect goods for the local food pantry and Toys for Tots.

The girls also trick or treated for UNICEF.

This is how we create a Caring and Compassionate Home and Commuity.


  1. We are talking about this in our house this week, as we choose our service projects for next year. Each year we do 4 family service projects. We do one for our local community, one for our global community, one that benefits animals, and one that benefits the environment. We have a long list of things we'd like to do. We make a list and try to narrow it down to a few that we then vote on. Then we work on them the rest of the year. Sometimes our projects require a little bit of research or for us to learn a new skill. It really fits perfectly into our homeschooling and our beliefs as UUs.

  2. Heather,
    Great ways to get the kids involved! Do you mind if I copy your project categories?
