How to Love Your Neighbor

There is no time like the present to step in and love our neighbors well. Here are just a few ways to serve your community:

Your Neighborhood

  • Create your own yard sign to encourage your neighbors!
  • Encourage your neighbors with Bible verses with chalk.
  • Start your own daily neighborhood parade like this family.
  • Start a neighborhood Facebook Page and invite your neighbors.

Donate to Your Local Food Pantry

Food insecurity is a real issue facing many in your community at this time. Food pantries are struggling to keep items in stock to alleviate some of the stress off your communities. Please click on your community's campus below for specific food pantries to donate to in your own neighborhood and see their specific needs.

Campus-Specific Opportunities

To stay in line with the CDC and government recommendations, we recommend serving outside of your home to be within the boundaries of your specific community. For specific opportunities to serve locally near your campus, please visit your respective campus' Community Impact page.
