Cream Soda Bar

Another request from a CARES Team - get fancy and colorful with your refreshments with a good ole fashioned Cream Soda Bar! Offer all the well-known brands in the glass bottles, and some of the lesser knowns from different countries, too. Have a taste test with unlabeled test cups to see how well your residents know their cream soda. We hope you have a fizzy, fun time with this one!

Clean Out Your Closet Flyer

Let's face it. We all have those clothes that we've been holding onto for a little too long, thinking we'll wear them but really — we need to just give them away! Host a community-wide closet cleaning event and see if you can give away some of your gently used clothes, shoes, and accessories to a new home that needs them more!

International Day of Peace

Download Flyer

September 21, 2016 is International Day of Peace - or Peace Day. Created by the United Nations in 1981, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute to building a culture of peace.

Our CARES Teams in South Texas will be using Peace Day as a platform to start good conversations with their neighbors. Teams are hosting simple gatherings with residents to take a moment to celebrate peace in the midst of our chaotic and uncertain world. It will be less like an event, and more like an act of care for their residents.

For anyone else who wants to participate - here's a flyer with lots of room for personalization. To our South Texas teams who have already started planning their event - we would love for you to share more about your event in the Comments below. And, we found some ideas you could incorporate into your celebration on Pinterest.

There are many ways to celebrate peace - peace in the midst of a racially charged environment. Peace in the midst of war. Peace in the midst of a heated presidential campaign. Peace in the midst of your own neighborhood. Whatever you focus on - we pray it's an inspirational event that brings people together in a new way.

Floats and Floaties

Summer is for swimming and sipping on a cold drink and hanging out with your neighbors. Summer is for kids playing outside and grown-ups relaxing. Summer is for loving on your neighbors and building community and sharing God's love with the people around you.

If there's a pool party in your future (or eight), then we have LOTS of ready-made flyers for you. That means you can spend all your time working on your tan and serving up snow-cones instead of inside your apartment designing flyers.

But save a snow-cone for me... okay?

CARES Team Spotlight: Breakfast on the Go

North Texas CARES Team member Katherine wrote: "Breakfast on the Go is such a great event for connecting with many residents, meeting new neighbors, and making people smile! It's also fairly easy to put together. We packed the bags the night before. One kid told Brian that he had a 'rough morning, but the donuts made his day better.' The residents always love this event, and we love blessing their mornings."

Our CARES Teams do a LOT of breakfast events, and we've got a LOT of breakfast flyers on our blog. Here's a whole list of them - check 'em out!

And of course, we love adding to our growing collection of editable flyers, so we've got a new one ready to go:

This flyer is available with editable event details, or, if you want to use it for a totally DIFFERENT event and want to spend a little time on design, we are offering a totally blank version.

And of course, we've got more ideas over on our Pinterest page - including an entire board of Breakfast on the Go ideas! Now, excuse me while I go make myself a breakfast burrito - all this designing is making me hungry!
