Raise Money for you Sparrow Program
Some schools have a Sparrow Program where they help one child that is in need of donations to offset medical costs. The school picks a child in need, and then they hold a movie night to help raise money for that child. It teaches students to help those less fortunate and shows them responsibility. The students help raise money over a 6-10 week period and then have a movie night to celebrate the money raised. The raised “donation” can then be presented to the child that evening.
Bring Attention to the Plight of Stray Animals
Have a movie night and charge admission of a donated item for your local animal shelter. Check with the shelter for specific needs or find their wish list. Common items include dog food, blankets, towels, brushes, treats & toys. See if a shelter volunteer is available to bring a dog or two that is up for adoption. It teaches students to be responsible for their own pets and to be kind to those they encounter along the way.
