We wish to begin this project at the end of May. Initially, we plan to build lifted beds and pallet gardens made from recycled wooden pallets. We then plan on planting late-summer vegetables and herbs that are appropriate to our USDA Plant Hardiness Zone (Zone 7). During this time, we will also begin composting, using waste from the rescue and any other waste from volunteers or participants. We aim to have the garden and composting system fully up and running by the end of June. Classes will be held on a weekly basis. We will do community outreach via Facebook, Instagram, and flyers.
We‘ll sell cake in school and give the money to the animal shelter and we‘ll collect mobile phones and send them to the telecom.

Starting with my own clothes, mostly outgrown pants (soft material), my sister and I will turn them into pillows that can be used by cancer treatment centers or even the humane society. Whether people in a cancer treatment chair or an animal in a humane society kennel, they deserve to be comfortable. We are learning how to reuse our old clothes, learning how to sew, and learning how to give and bring smiles to others. We are even attaching a hand written inspirational message to the ones going to the cancer center.

Pups and Cupcakes are hosting a Puppy and Cat coat/supplies drive. We are requesting Hair Products, dog/cat food, grooming kits, warm pet coats and sweaters. Item collected will be distributed to families and our local ASPCA.
We will start gathering recyclable materials from homes (wood, cardboard boxes, used paint, clothing, storage bins, etc.), make a thorough plan of the shelter and which animal it is targeted for and start building.

Each grade in our school is adopting a group of Community Helpers. Each grade will design and create a game made from recycled materials based on the Community Helper's profession. The students will facilitate these games at our annual Day of Play on October 15. Each group of community helpers (police, sheriff, EMT, etc) will be invited to be honored at a Day of Play that the public is invited to. Each group will be honored and will play the games with the students, thereby building a positive and playful experience together.

I will create a group in Facebook and invite all my friends and the public to like the project and invite them to share it to the people or organizations that they know are doing environmental and/or community service.
