“Idea List: Be a Super Server,” New Era, Oct. 1998, 15
Service projects don’t always have to require a lot of planning or involve a lot of people. Here are a few you can do all by yourself on a moment’s notice:
Write a note of encouragement to a friend or family member who is facing hardship or stress.
Read a funny story to a friend who is ill.
Pick up trash on your school campus, at the local park, or on the sidewalk.
Make your brother or sister’s bed.
Smile at someone.
Make cookies for the missionaries serving in your area.
Wash the windows of an elderly person or couple in your neighborhood.
Volunteer to help with cannery assignments.
Baby-sit for a young mother so she can run errands. Do it for free!
Vacuum the house while your mother is gone somewhere.
Help a friend with his homework.
Sit with a lonely person at lunch.
Write to a missionary serving from your home ward.
Visit an elderly person at a rest home.
Look around and find something that needs to be done. Do it!
