Third Day

We are planning on extending the donation drive for another week or two. On Thursday we are going to take down the old posters and make new ones with the new date! We checked the bin and there are a couple of new bags of stuff so we are going to get a few people to write down the new things and some make new posters and take down the old ones.

Donation Drive

Last Thursday, our group got together and we made posters for a donation drive! My church brought us a bin for storage. On Friday, one of my friends helped me put up the posters and set the bin up. The donation drive lasts from March 31st through April 11th. We're thinking about extending the date. We are collecting canned goods, old toys, old clothes, and hygiene products.

First Day


We had our first day on March 6th and we have eight members and three mentors. We got a box of canned goods even though we weren't collecting that day. We wrote down who is in the club and made sure none of the cans had dents or were expired. We got information on different homeless shelters and we have the cans stored at my house until we pass it on.

Mentors and Rooms


We talked to our mentor in person and she suggested some rooms we could work in. Mrs. Davis (Mentor) said she could collect the forms in her office. We also emailed our part-time mentor who is an art teacher at another school. She is going to help with supplies.
We made forms a while ago and we re-made them so all of the information is correct. Our future plan is to make the forms attachable to the posters so people could take a form if they’re interested and they can look at the posters too. Again we emailed Dr. Miller and made a short ‘script’ of what the announcements need to mention. Our first day is just going to be talking and learning about homeless people and what we’re going to do to help them.
About two weeks ago I, Jolene, talked to an elderly woman who works part-time in a homeless shelter and she says we can donate there, which would help us and them both. At that shelter they give soup to the homeless.

Getting Noticed

Recently our group made flyers and posters, so our school can see if they want to sign up. We also emailed Dr.Miller (Principal who runs school clubs) and asked her to mention it on the announcements so kids know to look for the posters and sign-up sheets. Our first day is March 6th from 3:15-4:00. We were going to make it on February 27th, but we need to give people time to sign up if they wish to do so.

Getting Started


Our 20% project is making an organization after school where we help the homeless and also do little projects to help everyone around us. We plan on meeting once a week and collecting canned foods, clothes, shoes, old toys, stuff people don't use, etc, every other week. Each week we meet, we will have some little project that the members of the group can do to help everywhere they go. The members will record what they did for the projects and get a parent's signature to show that they did their service project. Our organization will try to help the homeless but we also decided that we should try to help the people around us as well.  We also plan on making posters to put up around the school to “advertise” our organization.
