We started with an idea of how we can help the community more, by volunteering & being kinder, more supportive, then a small group got together with a first volunteer project, a second one, then another...and we kept going.
We saw how much it mattered to people and how much people really just wanted to help.
We have completed approximately 250+ volunteering projects and partnered with over 60 companies, businesses and teams.
We have raised awareness for many causes.
We have donated, cooked and served thousands of meals at the soup kitchen.
We've coordinated food drives on behalf of the soup kitchen and food pantries.
We have helped to custom fit and assist the SPA who gives thousands of bicycle helmets to kids.
We have planted & harvested food at the local community farm and delivered to soup kitchens and the hospital cafeteria.
We have planted & cleaned up beaches, playgrounds and backyards
We have set up & volunteered for charity concerts, walks, zumbathons, motorcycle rides.
We've climbed steps, walked miles and gave out water to runners.
We've collected and given flowers, warm blankets, coats and sundries. to the homeless and working poor.
We have sent thank you cards to veterans. We've visited patients in the military hospital.
We've planted thousands of flags on veterans graves.
We've coordinated a drive for guitars on behalf of the VA for a music therapy program.
We've hosted an Easter egg hunt for children at the homeless shelter.
We assisted at emergency shelters during hurricanes and delivered relief items to victims of hurricanes.
We've collected and given gently used, warm winter coats anyone who needs one.
We have helped to bring more kindness and caring support to our towns by encouraging and supporting volunteering locally.
