The youth group gets people to sponsor them for each hour of community service. Then, they schedule 20 hours of service over an eight week period. There are many organizations to choose from. On a national level, you can choose from many organizations such as Red Cross, The Salvation Army, or even needy people in your own church. In most communities, there are several local organizations also. The positive side of this fundraising idea is raising money by serving others.Source: Youth for Christ/USA (Englewood, California)
