Project Scope: Wash exterior and wipe down/clean out, sweep the interior of 1 cargo van and 3 box trucks. Recommend having different “stations” to spread out volunteers. We will have an entire parking lot to work in. Ideally someone from the group would move the trucks around.
How long can volunteers plan to be there? Length of time will be determined by how many people participate. They recommend having an exterior wash station, an inside cab washing station, and a cargo part of vehicle cleaning station.
What we need: 3 Plastic buckets to suds up the detergent, long-handled scrub brush for truck exterior wash. Deep Well will provide a hose, a broom, a bottle of detergent for washing, and cloth rags for wiping down the inside of the vehicles – seats, dashes, all surfaces – and windex for washing the inside of the windows of the vehicles.
Here are some great ways you can serve your local community wherever you live!
Pick one day out of the week to go around your neighborhood and pick up trash, debris, or fallen limbs. This may not seem like a lot but small things make a big impact. By picking up trash in your neighborhood you make the neighborhood look nicer and can even create a sense of pride in your community!
Do a Canned Food Drive
Invite members of your neighborhood to donate canned foods and non-perishables. This is something simple you can do and it allows others to participate. You can donate the items to a local shelter or a church in your area.
Donating clothes is a good way to serve your community. Take time to go through your clothes and pick out the gently used clothes that you do not wear anymore or maybe that you have grown out of. You can donate those clothes to a local shelter.
Contact your Local Boys and Girls Club
They are always in need of supplies! Ask them what you can donate and consider organizing a time every quarter or every year to collect items from your neighbors or community to donate.
Prayer Walk, Bike or Drive
Whether walking, biking or driving, take some committed time to pray for your community. Pray for the success of local business, your schools, and those in need. Organize a group prayer walk or prayer bike on a beautiful day with friends and neighbors who are also people of faith.
