There’s nothing more inspiring than driving somewhere and noticing a bunch of teens doing some kind of community service project. Today, it was a crew from the Alive In You Service Camps working at the Volunteer Center in Green Bay. According to their crew leader, Teri, about 450 teens from across the country came to spend a week in Northeast Wisconsin doing community service projects in Green Bay. At night, they attend their conference at Xavier High School in Appleton. Teri’s crew of about 10, from Brainerd, MN, was painting and doing some grounds-keeping today. Next time you drive past the Volunteer Center, just remember that it was someone like you who made a difference.
If you’ve been struggling to find purpose in life, look no further than offering a helping hand to someone who needs it. Go on a missions trip. Or just look outside your front door. Somebody needs you today.
