Attached are example of community service project we can do.   Just have the boys donate their old used shoes.  Or  our time by handing out flyers or get donations for the special needs children.   If wish to donate  old used shoes (being recycled so can be in any condition)  , and can't make it to the Green Fair let me know, I will pick them up from you.    If collecting donations for the Special needs children, remember it needs to go to the Elks Lodge by September 30th.  attn: Della Fitch.
