When I saw your post, I just had to respond. This year I decided to have my 2nd graders have a monthly service project. We may collect items or money to be donated to (mostly) local causes. I debated as to how to give my students "ownership" in the collection, rather than just having Mom/Dad purchase the item. I decided to ask the parents to have the child "earn" the item or the money, maybe by performing an extra chore. Here is what I have come up with so far:

Possible items to collect: (have students “work” at home to earn the item)
shoes
books
pencils
crayons
toothpaste/toothbrushes
soup
socks
soap
toys
stuffed animals
mittens
peanut butter (peanut butter month)
pasta (pasta month)
gift baskets for seniors
shampoo
lotion

Raise money for:
Heifer Project “Read to Feed”
Compassionate Friends “Walk to Remember”

Donate items to:
local Children's Hospital
local homeless shelters
Food Bank
Ronald McDonald House
YWCA
Humane Society
Hospice
Habitat for Humanity
servicemen
Operation Christmas Child (shoe-box) through Samaritan’s Purse
shoe recycling project of Nike

Do:
clean up playground

Schedule:
September shoes
October pasta/popcorn
November peanut butter (peanut butter lovers’ month)
December Operation Christmas Child/ mittens
January soup (soup-er bowl/football super bowl)
February toothpaste (dental health month)
March (nutrition)
April environment clean-up
May (Older Americans Month)
