We are still making a difference and getting to know our community through service. In January 2016 Pay-it-Forward youth had put in over 800 hours over the previous 14 months.
TEENS 12 to 16 are all welcome to join us.
Visit our Facebook page HERE to see pictures of what we are doing.
March 2017 Project - We are collecting 2 liter pop bottles for a project the Pay it Forward group is doing. If you have extra, empty 2 liter pop bottles laying around, we'll take them! You can drop them off at the Fine Arts Center. Thank you!
September 28- the plan is to meet at the Fine Arts center and work/tie a few fleece blankets to share for local emergency services needs. Come join us- with this many hands makes light work.
Thanks to all who helped us at the train depot on September 21, We got a lot of their Halloween decorations set out and ready for the season.
Thanks to those of you who helped walk our banner in the Peach Days parades to give us a presence. On September 14 we met at the usual time, helped with a small clean up project at the Fine Arts Center and started our Fall planning. We have a lot of fun Halloween projects we can help with.
So come check us out. We help you keep track of your service hours which is good for resume's and fun to see what a little bit over a period of time can add up to.
We usually meet weekly 3:45 pm to 5 pm or 5:15 pm. Please call to make sure we aren't doing a service off site. There will be no activity the week of August 24, but the following week, we will meet at our usual time at the Fine Arts Center and help fix up and decorate a parade float the the Melodrama.
