  2. 2. EARLY PERCEPTIONS<br /> At the beginning of the semester I didn’t know what to think, I was overwhelmed and worried how to commit to a project so big. After sitting down and discussing the plan of action, we figured out a way to help our community clean up and raise money for our troops. <br />
  3. 3. Engagement Activities<br />-We all inquired about the “Fully Online” Service Learning Experience.<br />-We meet every Thursday online at 9 pm. <br />-We made flyers to help raise awareness about out project and raise money. <br />

  6. 6. Personal Demographics<br />“My experience with this project was very empowering. It helped me to think about others before myself and I really learned a lot about different ways reach out and help our community.” <br />“I really enjoyed being hands on with this project. My fiancée is currently stationed in Kuwait on a second tour of duty, so it meant a to me to see that members of the community hadn’t forgotten about our troops.” <br />“ This was something I will always remember doing for my community. <br />
  7. 7. Engagement Activities<br />Mostly Online! (chat with group every Thursday for an hour) <br />We recycled cans to raise money for supplies to send to the troops.<br />Asked Family and Friends to collect cans also.<br />Recycled cans at Top Dollar Recycling. <br />We bought supplies at the Local Walgreen's and Shipped them to Iraq.<br />

  11. 11. Participant Demographics<br />Community: Impacted knowing they were taking part in making a difference.<br />Recycling Center: Thrilled to be part of such a thoughtful process.<br />Post Office: Were so helpful and efficient at getting the packages to Iraq safely!<br />
  12. 12. Reflection<br />This experience has been an eye opener. We see that one simple can,can be saved by your entire community and recycled so that Troops in Iraq are able to have some candy to eat and some soap to wash with. We were so honored to be part of such a humbling experience!<br />
  13. 13. Reflection <br />All together our group saved $213.00 (collecting cans)<br />We really came together as a group and worked hard, to support our troops. <br />As a future educator I realized while doing this project..that teaching is not only about the students learning, but about getting your students to become passionate about something. <br />
