Service is the cornerstone of the Pebble Tossers mission. Through service, we empower and equip the youth of today to be the leaders of tomorrow. The serve resources outlined here provide a variety of opportunities for Pebble Tossers to develop their compassion, curiosity, creativity and connections that will move them forward to leadership and success.
Meal Brigade For Ronald McDonald House
At this time, due to the medically fragile nature of the families the RMH serves and the health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-site volunteer opportunities have been suspended. However volunteers can still support these families. Volunteers are needed to provide a meal that is individually boxed and commercially prepared from a caterer, grocery store deli, or delivered from a restaurant establishment, please click here sign up directly with a RMH and to secure an open date. Someone from the Ronald McDonald House will follow up with more information after you register – including the number of meals needed, meal options, and drop off details.
Provide a Meal for Covenant House Georgia
Covenant House Georgia is more than a shelter. They provide more than a bed and a meal for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking; they show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that their youth can and will realize their fullest potential. Covenant House is in need of volunteers to prepare and share meals throughout the week. This is a wonderful opportunity for families, groups, and individuals to impact the lives of youth experiencing homelessness. Visit Pebble Tossers Service Calendar for more details on how to participate.
Thoughtful Notes for InCommunity
InCommunity provides care and support to those with developmental and intellectual disabilities (IDD). InCommunity is a consistent part of their lives where they see their friends, interact with the community & arts, and practice daily living skills. Due to COVID regulations, all of this has changed. The InCommunity clients and the staff that care for them on the frontlines would love to hear some encouragement from their community!
- Help spread the love. Send a thoughtful note to those who are still working hard to support individuals in their homes and to those who are being cared for who long for a sense of normalcy. Taking a moment to say thank you or sending a note to say we appreciate you can go a long way! Click here for more details.
- No-Sew Cuddle Blankets: No-sew cuddle blankets are a great project to do at home and send or deliver to InCommunity to give to the residents in their group homes. In addition to being warm and cozy, they make good fidget items for individuals who like to have something to do with their hands. Click here for more details and to register.
NOTE: This project can be done on any day. To help our members record service hours we have listed this project on several different days. It doesn’t matter which day you actually register with Pebble Tossers.
