7th Grade Expedition: What's the Cost Service Project: Chores for Change!
Chores for Change is a service program designed for children and youth. Whether at home, school, or in another group setting, the program shows students how they can create local and global change at the same time. The program invites students to volunteer in their communities while raising funds to support our mission around the world. Students recruit sponsors to pledge donations for the time they spend doing service activities. Once their service is complete, participants collect pledges, helping to eliminate hunger and poverty around the world. In their CREWs students participated in a poverty simulation and decided to purchase plants or animals for families around the world. Ask your child what their CREW has chosen to purchase!
Students can do chores around the house or their communities to collect change! This project will go until December 7, 2018. So far students have collected over $1,100.00! WAY TO GO!
