4. Run a school supply drive.
You probably have a closet full of school supplies you no longer need, so why not donate them to kids who do! Set up a drop-off at a local school, church, or grocery store. You can even organize a fun supply swap.
6. Organize a holiday luminary lighting.
Have the neighborhood pitch in to provide sand, tea candles, and white paper bags to line the streets with glowing luminaries. On luminary light night everyone can walk around the neighborhood with hot chocolate admiring the beauty.
8. Throw an annual yard sale.
Hang out with the neighbors while doing some shopping. There is almost nothing better than a great find at a yard sale.
10. Plant a community garden.
This is especially great for communities that don’t have ample access to fresh produce. Kids can learn so much from gardens, and your body will thank you for all the veggies.
