This workshop will allow our 10th grade students to gain a deeper understanding of their strengths and areas of growth through taking a variation of the myers briggs personality type assessment. We will be breaking down what their different personality styles teach them about who they are and how that connects to deciding on a best fit college and major.Volunteers and students will take a brief self-assessment and then engage in small group activities around what each portion of the personality indicator teaches them about themselves, and also how it connects to planning for college, and what types of colleges and majors might be a good fit for them based on their personalities.All workshop materials will be provided to volunteers ahead of time.
Dates: 10/09/2020 - 11/01/2020

For this project, volunteers will write notes of inspiration and encouragemnet to be included in the care packages sent to our first year college students. Our annual Care Package Campaign supports our HEAF college students by sending our students some inspiration and motivation, a little piece of HEAF home and some much needed essentials. For this year's Care Package Campaign, a little love will go a long way. As our first year college students are beginning this new chapter - what is supposed to be some of the best years of their educational journey - so many are filled with anxiety and uncertainty about what is ahead. Many of our college students are taking classes remotely while living at home; others are away at school, navigating trying to stay safe and healthy while managing a mixture of in-person and online classes. Regardless of where our students are, we want to ensure that they feel loved and supported by their HEAF community, and know that we are here to encourage them during this time

The St Giles Pantry has been working tirelessly to limit the impact of Covid-19 on our vulnerable clients and those facing food poverty by providing healthy, nutritious fresh food each week for disadvantaged individuals and enabling families and clients to survive during this crisis. Unlike a food bank, this highly empowering model focuses on fresh and healthy food, ensuring that regardless of circumstances people can prioritise health and nutrition. Demand has grown week on week with the small team now delivering across 18 London boroughs, feeding 650 vulnerable people every week.In September, the Pantry will be relocating to a permanent site in Camberwell to continue operations and supporting vulnerable clients and local residents. We have a volunteering opportunity to support the team with the set-up of this new site and with the packing and distribution of food parcels. To meet social distancing guidelines, we can incorporate two volunteers at once and realistically will need people for 3-4 hours each day. Please select the day you prefer to volunteer and we will confirm exact times closer to the time to ensure volunteers enjoy the experience and come when help is most needed. In order to minimise risk, we kindly ask that only IICF board and committee members volunteer for this project.

Bring joy to the lives of the families who are currently navigating the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Join Today is a Good Day in creating homemade name signs for babies in the NICU. All you need is a piece of construction paper or cardstock and some markers. Leave a space in the middle for the baby's name and the rest is up to you! Add motivational quotes, words of encouragement, or you own drawings, or all three! After you complete your signs (make as many as you would like) mail them back to Today is a Good Day at 1108 Bethlehem Pike, Flourtown, PA, 19031. This is a great activity to do with the family! A story from our founder: When the Sharkey Family spent 103 days in the NICU, they received handmade signs from students at a local elementary school with their daughters' names and encouraging messages. These signs were placed by Claire and Mary's isolettes and later became the backgrounds for their special memory boxes. Help other families by making signs for NICU babies. The mission of Today is a Good Day is to provide personal and financial support to families who experience the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
