This year, Belmont Serves – the town’s day of community service held on the Columbus Day holiday – will be staying close to home.
The organizers of the annual event – the Belmont Religious Council – is asking that people chose one or several service projects (see below) to do on your own, with your family, pod, neighborhood or service group. Take a picture or a quick video and share with the community the good that is happening in Belmont.
Here are some recommended service projects for you to chose from:
- Print out a Belmont Serves Bingo Card and plan out a few service ideas with the kids! (A completed card could get you an ice cream! Details on the card)
- Clean up trash on your street, at your park
- Ask neighbors what you can do to help-yard work, change light bulbs etc..
- Plant some flower bulbs for your family or neighbor
- Go on a walk/run in your neighborhood and say hello to all those who cross your path
- Hold a car wash and give proceeds to the Belmont Food Pantry
- Support a local business
- Painting Kindness Rocks/Hope Rocks and place them near your sidewalk
- Clothing drive for Cradles to Crayons
- Thank you notes for front-line workers
- Book Exchange – donate in your neighborhood
- Belmont Helps will have a Free Mask table in Belmont Center on Monday, Oct. 12 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
