Service Learning Projects Energize

After reading an article in the recent issue of Inspire, the Alumni magazine for the College of EDU and Human Ecology, I am truly inspired!  I have been kicking around a service project idea since reading What Difference Do It Make? but was unsure how to proceed.
 As an educator in today's classroom, and the wife of a soon to be pastor, I walk a fine line between educating and serving, but that is an entirely different story altogether!  I want to tie our character education into community service.  I want to instill within our students the value of giving and the power they hold when they work as a team.  I believe I have found my answer!  If you have experience in service learning projects or stories to share, please feel free to pass your ideas, tips and inspirations along.
