Brittany Johnson brings us the following message regarding the e-Club Community Service Calendar. 
Hi everyone!  I’ve sent the community service calendar above so everyone has easy access to it.  December's theme is Holidays. At the party we made holiday cards that will be delivered to local nursing homes. If you weren't able to make the party, or if you live outside of Houston please find any local nursing home and you can still participate. The holidays can be a hard time, especially for those in nursing homes, and they are so grateful to receive cards and be remembered this time of year.
January’s theme is Winter Weather so you may also bring coats or blankets for donations in January. 

I also wanted to share a few intentional activities for those that have children (or even those that don’t!).  We have been using our elf on the shelf to introduce some of these projects and they coordinate with our homemade advent calendar that is centered primarily around giving and kindness.
  1. Cleaning out toys or closets
  2. Donation to local food drive
  3. Donation to local hospital (our children’s hospital hands out teddy bears to patients.  We even met a patient who had just received on and he gave our boys high fives and personally thanked them for making his spirits brighter)
  4. Adopt a child (check local churches, school organizations, advocacy centers, etc) or angel tree
  5. Pay it forward (even as simple as in the Starbucks line)
  6. Deliver cookies or dinner to local firefighters 
  7. Letters to Santa!  If you deliver a letter to Santa (or fill one out online!) at Macy’s they donate $1 per letter to Make A Wish!
