Senior Project - doing chores for local senior citizens
Can be done by a committee or a single person. Advertise at local senior center or through newspaper the service available. This can be a one-time event, e.g. a Saturday where several members participate or an ongoing service where the chairperson is contacted when needed.
Event Rating: Very Successful
Event Complexity: Slightly Complex
Event Pros and Cons:
You need to define and limit what services you are willing to perform. We do not do electrical or plumbing jobs. However, we do things like change light bulbs, pruning of trees and bushes, furniture moving (within the home), hanging curtain rods, etc. Depending on how you set it up, you need to organize a group of willing and capable volunteers.
