Great Ways To Serve Even When Social Distancing

Here are a few #sociallydistancedservice ideas! 

  • Draw art and hang it in your window so that individuals taking walks can enjoy.
  • Use sidewalk chalk to write encouraging messages.
  • Facetime elderly family members and check in.
  • Help your mom/dad clean the house.
  • Tell all your neighbors to go outside and sing a song at the end of their driveways.

CHS SCA Angel Tree

The Caroline High School SCA is excited to make the season brighter for local families and furry friends. These student leaders organized an Angel Tree this year and were able to provide presents for ten families in need as well as pet supplies for the Caroline Animal Shelter. Over 70 presents were collected! Thank you to all of the teachers, staff, students, parents, and especially to U4C Victory Ministries for being angels and making an impact in our community this year.

SCA members hold Angel tree donations as they sit around the tree.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE:Collaborating within the division to give our high schoolers the opportunity to practice using their vocational skills while helping meet the needs of our elementary school students.

GWENDOLYN GREEN(an ISS Coordinator at CHS)TIA COURTNEY(a cosmetology teacher at CHS), andSOPHELIA ROLLINS(an ISS Coordinator at BGE), all came together to create a program called Beauty and Barber.  This program was developed to not only help elementary students feel good about themselves by providing free haircuts and styles once a week, but also to give high school students an opportunity to practice their cosmetology skills.  The program includes the collaboration of building principals for approval, teachers to identify students who can participate, transportation to get students from school to school, and students to cut and style the hair.  

[Beauty and Barber originated with a non-profit organization called Colorless Missions that aims to help improve families through livelihood programs, providing school supplies, and support outreach programs.  They help to heal, restore, and build lasting relationships in the community through outreach, service projects, acts of kindness, and prayer.]
