Builders Club Projects: Eight end-of-year ideas

  1. Ring your bell.  Collect needed items for the Salvation Army or be a bell ringer. Salvation Army Bell
  2. Visit a nursing home. Many nursing home residents have few visitors and find the holidays a very difficult time. Clubs can simply visit with members, take a road trip and go caroling at a variety of nursing homes, or coordinate a cleaning project—vacuuming, dusting, and window cleaning.
  3. Trim a tree. Decorate a Christmas tree at a nursing home, hospital, school or homeless shelter. And if needed, contact a local tree farm about donating a Christmas tree to any of these locations.
  4. Collect coats. Collect old coats that either don't fit or are not worn anymore. Have them cleaned at a cleaner and then distribute them to people in need.
  5. Hold a canned good drive. Most communities have a food pantry for people in need. Help stock the shelves.
  6. Bag it. Collect and decorate grocery paper bags for the holidays. They fill them with fresh fruit, candy, and small toy gifts for children.
  7. Adopt a family. Provide food, decorations, and gifts for a family in need.
  8. Create a mitten & cap tree. Create a "Mitten & Cap Tree" by placing a sign on a tree limb, and collect mittens and caps for kids who don't have them during the cold season.
