I've done a coat drive. There was a dry cleaner that cleaned the coats for free. The kids collected, sorted, and bagged the coats. We put an article in the local paper. Included was a picture with the mountains of coats in back of the kids!

The kids have also made lunches for a local homeless shelter. They decorated the lunch bags and then filled them with sandwiches, chips, juice box and a cookie. This is a year long program with a different class doing it each month.

Our school does a food drive for the local food bank.

Kids in my school visit a nursing home and make valentines with the residents. They sing songs and have lunch together.

Every year my class "adopts" a child during holiday time. The kids do chores at home to make money. The money is donated to buy the child clothes and toys. The kids love seeing what I have purchased with the donated money.

I know I kind of rambled on, but I was typing as things came to mind.
