People would look to them to help do grassroots level work and improve their community. The Boy Scouts were in almost every town and had complete knowledge of their community which was a big factor in their service. But how did this work help in the war effort during World
Although most of my involvement has centered around politics, where I have been an active volunteer in the current election cycle, my service also extends to the homeless community in the Quad Cities. After recognizing the extent of homelessness in Davenport, my friend decided to start a nonprofit 5K to benefit a local shelter and I immediately joined in the venture. By working with the shelter rather than independently, we were able to avoid the faults set forth in To Hell With Good Intentions. Our good intentions have donated over $10,000 to King’s Harvest Ministries, who uses funds in a way that raises the standard of living for the local homeless
I remember when my brother introduced me to Brother-to-Brother, an affinity group for men of color to create a community within themselves and get involved in the broader Nobles community. The group made me feel welcome and now as a senior, I try to be that same mentor to all the new kids. I enjoy connecting with the group through meaningful activities such as participating in the Walk For Hunger to raise money for hungry people. This group has played a big role in the success of my Nobles career and I hope to find a similar experience in college.
The New Deal had a positive effect on the American people by the jobs it created. “His administration also established the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), which employed millions of young men, mostly urban, to work in camps at national parks and forests on conservation and reforestation projects” (“New Deal”). This shows that the New Deal had a positive effect by creating jobs because this New Deal program helped surmount the very exorbitant unemployment rates. Now, all these men can get money from their new job. Another way this evidence shows that the New
I pay for the adorable shirts that come along with every event. Who wouldn’t want a big colorful shack shirt to remember the memories from an event? I pay for my philanthropy events. We hold two a year and our money goes to planning and actually hosting the event. My chapter just raised $14,000 for Make-A-Wish from our golf tournament last

These events provide students with the opportunity to make independent decisions and display leadership. Whether it be opportunities for students to volunteer for Freshman Orientation or Parents Night or any other student council event, they display academic and life-skills that will be of good use to them in their futures. Our events have always been successful and those who have been involved have been nothing short of impressed with our services. The canned food drive is a very popular event that we hold at our school. The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis.
Several years ago, Packers’ former chairman and CEO, Bob Harlan, added a facility to Lambeau Field benefiting both the team and the community, which included stores, restaurants, a Packers Hall of Fame and a catering facility. Harlan’s addition to Lambeau Field was partially funded by $169 million in public funds. Ultimately, the facility was developed within two years and dramatically increased the team’s revenue, contributed to local economy and became a model for other franchises (Hruby, 2011). Also, each year, the Packers donate 60 percent of concession sale proceeds to local charity groups (Zirin,
From hands-on service around the world, to originating successful fundraisers, I participate in various aspects of community service. Some of my fundraisers have even been published. I currently spend most of my time doing service towards my fundraising project expanding access to education. I could not imagine being one of the over 75 million children without access to education. As I was beginning my hobby of DJing, I immediately decided that I will partner with Pencils of Promise (PoP) to start my own fundraising project where twenty percent of my profits from every event DJ’d will go to the organization.
My father taught me everything about the city including the many opportunities Chicago had to offer to how the city has changed drastically over the years. I was just the passenger on this ride we call life while soaking up all the world had to offer. I was the passenger. I listened entranced to each story my father told while simply staring out the window taking in the stunning scenery every day growing up in Chicago, I loved being the passenger. My dad listened to some pretty incredible music, music I now listen to in my adult life.
