I am so excited to share the deatils of the Great Big Service Project!
The Teen Great Big Service Project is an opportunity for Carrollton teens to earn community service hours. It’s a drop in kind program—no registration required.
The service project will actually span several weeks it will take place at the Carrollton Public Library at Josey Ranch Lake (1700 Keller Springs Road) from 5:00-7:30pm on the following dates:
- April 3
- April 10
- April 17
For this, our very first service project, we will be making blank greeting cards for an organization called Operation Write Home. Operation Write Home’s mission is to support “our nation’s armed forces by sending handmade blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as ‘AnyHero’ cards of gratitude to encourage them.” To view the kinds of cards that are being sent out via Operation Write home check out the Gallery.
There are so many wonderful organizations out there it was difficult to choose one to work with! As someone who grew up with a lot of military kids and who has had multiple loved ones deployed several times, I thought this was a great cause to launch our first annual Teen Great Big Service Project. The troops appear to love them too. Check out the Hero Blog for their testimonials.
I hope you’ll join us! If you have any questions, leave us a comment. Personally, I can’t wait!
