  • Autism Speaks: http://www.autismspeaks.org
  • Child Share a part of Circle of Care: http://www.circleofcare.org/
    Check out Child Share on this website. (go to COMMUNITY RESOURCES, click on Child Share). Child Share offers support to foster parents to children from the Department of Human Services. Have a shower for Child Share and invite a speaker to talk about the program, get a list of the most needed items, bring presents and have cake and punch. Don’t forget a camera to take pictures. This organization helps the helpers. (Oklahoma City and Tulsa)
  • Coupons for Military Families www.ocpnet.org
    Military commissaries accept coupons up to six months after expiration. This is a great way to help the military families overseas with coupons you don't use and expired coupons. One of the largest groups is the Overseas Coupon Program, serving bases in the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Belgium, Italy, Turkey and Spain.
  • Feed the Children: http://www.feedthechildren.org/site/PageServer?pagename=dotorg_homepage
  • FreeRice: www.freerice.com
    FreeRice is a nonprofit website run by the United Nations World Food Program. Our partner is the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.
    FreeRice has two goals: 1. Provide education to everyone for free. 2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free. For each answer you get right, FreeRice donates 10 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger. "Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide," the website says.
  • Habitat for Humanity: http://www.habitat.org/getinv/
    How about the House that HOSA helped build? This site provides information about Habitat for Humanity and ways that people can get involved to help, donating, finding a local project and helping.

Additional Ideas can be found in Unit 7, “Making a Difference” in HOSA Learn Grow Become, which is available from CIMC. It has excellent worksheets for HOSA members to use to identify community projects.

Local Girl Scout leaders (always looking for ideas for meetings) would welcome presentations on health-related issues.

Homeless shelters would welcome volunteers. Some possibilities to offer would be to organize a drive for toiletries in small sizes or help with serving a meal.

HOSA members could offer assistance to churches, synagogues or mosques that provide outreach services or have a need for health-related information.
