Unique Service Project Ideas

Hey guys,

I'm looking for some out-of-the-ordinary service project ideas for a group of about 50 students (my marching band). I'd really like to do something other than the typical visit-a-nursing-home or food bank deal. It'd be super awesome if it could be something that will help to emphasize the lesson I'm trying to encourage through this, which is that we can use our God-given talents to serve others and glorify God. I'd appreciate it if you can help me think of some ideas! Thanks!

Hmm. The first thing that came to my mind worked [i]very [/i]well for me and a few friends (there were 6 including me), but it wasn`t 50 people. :/
My school was very into the community service thing, and not only were we required 50 hours a year, but little projects that we would make PowerPoint slideshows and write papers about. (Meaning, it counted for computer class, English class [i]and [/i]our community service.)


We offered to be the birthday entertainment at birthday parties of some neighbours of kids in the area. We dressed as clowns and made those balloon animals and did cheap card tricks.


If you aren`t opposed to dressing in a clown suit and bending balloons in fun shapes for screaming children for hours, you could give it a try...

Go to local childern's home and talk to the people in charge and see if they'll let you guys have a picknick and fun games for the kids there. You could have everyone bring different things as far as supplies goes. It would make those kids REALLY happy.

A lot of charitable agencies collect homemade blankets, quilts, afghans et cet and deliver them to people in need. You could gather your band members and have everyone help in making them. Those talented in knitting or crocheting could create them in that manner, and even those with less experience can make simple fleece throws (you can look online for easy patterns and instructions) and help out with cutting and organizing. It is a fun way to do service and would connect nicely with your lesson, because even though everyone has varying degrees of talent, they can all find some way to use it for the benefit of others and to glorify God. The only downside is you have to find some way to pay for all the materials.
