21 DAYS OF GOOD DEEDS DOWN! NINE TO GO!
In the first three weeks of September of Service we have provided 1260 hours of service to our community, already surpassing SOS 2012′s 1080 hours. Way to go, CBU SOSers!!! Our goal this year was to be 25% more awesome and with only 90 more hours we will have accomplished it!
This past week we served dinner with Friends For Life to persons living with HIV/AIDS; helped around the office at Memphis Child Advocacy Center; helped clean up CBU‘s campus, made PBJs, and assembled gifts for donors to the Annual Fund; threw a Pirate Party at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital to celebrate “Talk Like a Pirate” day; painted and cleaned at the Memphis Urban League; picked up 7,500 pounds of trash at McKellar Lake with Memphis City Beautiful and the Memphis River Warriors; and spent time with the residents of Catholic Charities Genesis House, a home for individuals with mental illness and addictions.
In our final week we will spiff up DeNeuville Learning Center, help First Congregational Church prepare for their 150th anniversary; rehabilitate two houses and throw a carnival for kids in the Beltline community; serve up some CBU hospitality to homeless individuals at Manna House; set up for the Memphis Air Show; dominate some privet at Lichterman Nature Center; break down the LuvMud obstacle course; and help out over at De La Salle Blessed Sacrament school.
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!!!!
