Doing Good Days
Event Recap: Our service project at Ms. Betty’s house was a tremendous success! We were so excited to see multiple families join together to accomplish some very tedious yardwork. With the help of all of these families, we were able to collect bag upon bag of leaves, clean off Ms. Betty’s roof and driveway, and even accomplish some minor landscaping, like cutting down a small tree! But more important than all of those things, we were able to bring joy to Ms. Betty’s heart! Seeing the smile on her face and hearing her frequent thank you’s were evidence of a job well done. Thank you to everyone who participated and made this day a success!
Event Recap: Our kids had a great time being in charge of our Doing Good Day Bake Sale for Kids Helping Kids again this year! We had some great baked goods created by our families and by some of our amazingly talented client families as well. Thank you for all who contributed and participated, it was a great turnout with lots of delicious treats available for purchase. The kids were a little nervous, but after the first 15 minutes they were selling like professionals! A huge thank you to Walgreen’s for letting us use their sidewalk again for our sale. The kids raised $300 for Mercy Project to help in the freeing of child slaves in Ghana. Thank you to all who donated, participated, baked and came out to show your support!
We joined forces with Gotcha6 to volunteer out at New Heights on April 12th. We had a great turnout, thank you to all who joined us! We worked with Stephen and Michelle from New Heights to stage tables, chairs, food, coolers, tents, and other items so they were ready to go for the event on Sunday. The unusually high winds they had that day prevented us from getting to set up everything, for fear it would blow away. Overall it was a great time and as always we were excited to help out such a great organization!
Our Doing Good Day with Covington Food Bank was record breaking! We had a great time volunteering alongside Covington Rotary on Feb. 11th. The day was a theme of box related activities; making boxes, filling boxes, giving out boxes, and tearing down boxes. The day could have been warmer, but you couldn’t tell by looking at the smiles on the faces of the whopping 25 volunteers who came out to help! We heard 9 was the highest number of pallets completed in a day (a pallet of boxes filled with food about 3 boxes high and maybe 5 wide). This happened around Christmas one year. We set our goal for the day of beating that record by the time we left at noon. We didn’t just beat it, we smashed it with 17! We finished so many pallets they ran out of pallet to fill! We hope this is setting the pace for numbers of volunteers and the amount of work we can finish for each non-profit we work with! Thank you to all who came out! Together we can make a difference!
