It all begins with you. Get involved, show love to others, and make a difference. Choose to participate in any or all of the following ways to give back to others. Through each of these caring acts, we can reach people in our neighborhood, community, and world. Join us throughout November as we campaign for kindness.

Serve Day

Serve a Neighbor //
Be a part of Serve Day! Participate by doing either of the projects suggested here or come up with your own! The most important thing is that we are serving others!
Serve Day at Home

Serve a neighbor any time in November. Here are a few ideas:
Serve a Neighbor // Check in on your neighbors to see if they need help or encouragement. Deliver baked goods or hot meals to neighbors, rake someone else’s yard, or just stop by for a visit.
Reach Out // Call or video call a friend or loved one.
Write a Note // Let the kids make homemade cards or write an email or letter to a teacher, neighbor, or friends!
Support Local // Volunteer to support a local non-profit or local business.

Here are a few local partners you can consider:

Give to the Children's Development Center  //
The Children’s Development Center at Grand Commission Church in La Ceiba, Honduras helps children of all ages achieve their goals and helps them fulfill their God-given potential. The Ridge has had a long standing relationship with them, and you can play a part in their work by praying and giving generously. The four areas in which they serve at-risk kids are: 
  • nutritional meals/dietary supplements 
  • academic support (tutoring and assistance with uniforms and supplies)
  • medical and dental care
  • spiritual guidance.

Impact your neighbors, community, and world!

Kindness can come in all shapes, sizes and situations, but it has one thing in common—it can change the world.
