About twice a year we do a school clean-up day as a family. It happened to fall this weekend on the National Day of Service aligned with MLK Holiday. In 90 minutes we collected SIX bags of trash at two school campuses in Raleigh, NC. Kids looooove doing this. It’s easy, family-friendly, not around lots of people, and safe with gloves and precautions.
The top pic was at my youngest’s elementary school. The middle was at my oldest’s school. And the truck was leaving for the dump! The schools are close to the dump and get tons of trash on the road that falls out of trucks – all the time. If you need an easy service project, grab a bag or two (or more) and clean up a school on a busy street or the woods on a greenway trail.
