Pay It “Backward”

Surprise someone! Pay for their food or coffee (behind you) at a drive-thru. Hand the cashier an encouragement card to pass along the #forSalem #forKeizer love!

Hide gift card / cash in someone’s shopping cart

Sneak around a store and when someone’s not looking tuck an encouragement card and some money or a gift card in their stuff. What a fun surprise they’ll get at checkout!

Donate clothes to local charity

Go through your closets and toy baskets and clean out your good-condition unwanted things. Two birds, one stone: you de-clutter and these organizations benefit!  Try St. Vincent’s De Paul or Salvation Army. Or do a web search for some non-profits near you!

Hospital Activity Packets or Cards

The local hospital always has needs. Call the volunteer line at yours and see what’s needed. In Salem, you can drop off activity cart stuff: coloring books, playing cards, activity books, coloring pencils, and/or crayons at Building B anytime!
