We will plant bee friendly plants to increase the oxygen and pollination levels in designated areas. We will build each community by restoring damaged grounds and paint any graffitti areas to beautify the area.

The grant would be used to purchase native species of plants that attract butterflies, birds and more with a sense of home! In addition the grant will be used to purchase materials for bird feeders and seating areas. Any additional grant funds will be used for watering cans, materials to make recycled wind chimes, and paint for making motivational signs for children.

We are going to complete this project during our Summer Camp community service week. We have adult volunteers who will supervise and guide children through this service project, following the lead of the project creator, a 5th grade boy. Our project will take approximately 5 days to complete, including scraping the existing paint, planning and stenciling the designs, and painting the murals.

Ashtabula Area City Schools, particularly the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students, have been working on becoming more sustainable and even created a sustainability committee to address environmental issues in our school and community. One of the big problems the students saw was that there was no recycling program in our school as well as a very confusing community recycling system that needed more clarification. Our school uses styrofoam trays at breakfast and lunch and the students wondered why they weren't recyclable even with the triangle on the bottom. They did not like that hundreds of trays were thrown away and added to our landfill each day! The students in our school, along with their teachers, were able to get a recycling program started in the school and worked with the Assistant Director of Community Services and Planning to get 2 recycle bins donated to the schools for the community to use as well. The director explained to students why some things are recyclable in this area and why they are not. Students will be working on ways to get out into the community to educate the public on what is acceptable to recycle. In addition to this recycling program, students continue to be guests at city council meetings explaining the plastic pollution problem and their new focus is on banning plastic bags in the county by switching to reusable options. (They are working on convincing our school treasurer to purchase reusable lunch trays or compostable options as well. It hasn't happened yet, due to funds.) Students would like to do demonstrations outside of stores, showing the public how to up-cycle old t-shirts into reusable bags that can be used right away in that store. The only down side is that these t-shirt bags do not hold much in them. Our students would like to provide and sell larger sustainable canvas bags, designed by students, to promote awareness of the importance of reducing plastic usage and switching to reusable bags that will help our environment. We all would like to see less bags on the sides of the roads, stuck in trees, and in our nearby Lake Erie and many rivers that can harm wildlife.

The goal of this project was to raise awareness about changes that anyone can make to reduce their carbon footprint, while also uniting our school's community through a plant giveaway. We created two kinds of booklets that we gave away along with the plants: one about how to support native plants and pollinators, and another about how to reduce your carbon footprint. We hoped that this project would raise awareness about the impact that an individual can have on the planet.

Student Day of Caring provides an avenue for students to engage in brief volunteer service projects. The Twin County United Way conducts annual Days of Caring to promote volunteerism with businesses and schools. Student Days of Caring are intended introduce students to volunteering and encourage students to continue to volunteer throughout the year and into the future. The students will be at a dozen different locations around the Lewis-Clark Valley participating in a variety of hands-on activities including cleaning, yardwork, painting, repackaging food and sorting donations. This takes place on the first day of school for Lewiston High School, and involves all students who are seniors.
