Activity #1: Decorated Community Rocks
Our devotion this week taught us that when things get tough and don’t go our way, we should put others first and help out the people around us. While everyone in our community is living through hard times right now, let’s do something together to brighten up our neighborhoods and put smiles on our neighbor’s faces!
Directions: Use paint or sharpie markers to decorate a rock that you find in your backyard or neighborhood any way that you like. Then, when you are out on a walk or bike ride, leave it alongside the sidewalk to spread some cheer. You might even see some of your friends’ rocks decorating the neighborhood too! If you would like, send us a picture of your rock and we will post it on our website!
Activity #2: Make-Your-Own Card
You might know a few friends, family members, or neighbors that need some cheering up right now, and there certainly are a lot of folks in nursing homes that could use something to lift their spirits. Another way that we can put others first is by creating homemade cards and letters for these people to let them know that we care about them and are thinking of them.
Directions: Use a piece of paper and markers, crayons, colored pencils, or whatever else you can find around your house to make two cards, one for someone that you know, and one for someone who is living in a nursing home. Think about writing a nice message inside the letter and including a few drawings of things that might make someone happy (maybe a flower, a sunny day, your pets…..be creative!) Then, bring the cards for the nursing homes to us at the Salvation Army and we will deliver them to a nursing home near us.

ONGOING! Service Project Opportunity for Youth! SUSPENDED
While the residents of many senior living communities are unable to have visitors or leave their apartments to visit their loved ones, the Salvation Army Youth are reaching out to show their love and support by creating handmade letters and artwork, which will be delivered to nearby communities to spread cheer! If your child wishes to join us in this project, all that he/she needs to do is write a letter, draw or paint a picture, or create another type of artwork in their free time. Then, their creations may be delivered to our building at 445 Madison Street and Cheri and Caroline will deliver everything to local senior homes. We hope you and your children consider being a part of this endeavor!
