Congratulations, CBU!! In only two weeks we have served 730 hours in the Memphis community!
In week two of September of Service: 30 Days of Good Deeds. we visited with residents of Jewish Nursing Home and Rehab, made cookie-mix-in-a-jar with residents of Ave Maria Home, worked the Birthright phone-a-thon, did art and other activities with people with disabilities at SRVS, ran activities for students at the Boys and Girls Club, organized and beautified at Gestalt Community School, and made fourteen baby blankets for Small Beginnings, an organization that serves mothers of premature babies.
This week, we will serve dinner with Friends For Life to persons living with HIV/AIDS, help around the office at Memphis Child Advocacy Center, do a variety of on-campus projects right here at CBU, throw a Pirate Party at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital to celebrate “Talk Like a Pirate” day (don’t they mean Buccaneer??), execute an interior design plan (paint, hang pictures and clean) at the Memphis Urban League, clean up McKellar Lake with the Memphis River Warriors, and spend time with the residents of Catholic Charities Genesis House, a home for individuals with mental illness and addictions.
Party!! Save the Finale Date: Noon, Saturday, October 5! Remember, for every day you serve you get a chance to win some fun prizes (not a car!) at our S.O.S. Finale on Saturday, October 5 in Boshwit Courtyard. Make plans now to attend!
New for 2013: ROGUE SOSing! This year we are adding a new dimension to SOS. If you can’t join us for one of our scheduled service projects, we welcome you to don your SOS shirt, serve your community (wherever you are in the world), and post your good deed (including a picture) to our Facebook page. Don’t have an SOS shirt? Make a sign! Don’t have a sign? SOS anyway!!!!
