Pine 4 Mural

In FEMA Corps Class 19, there were 21 teams. At the end of our service, each team was able to create a mural in one of the training rooms. During my training, I spent many hours staring at previous teams murals while I tried to stay awake. So, I was excited when we found out that we got to create something to be seen by future classes.

My teammate Spencer designed out mural, which was then painted as a team. Each teammate got their own flower to decorate, and our van has bumper stickers for every place we have been. Here’s a bit of the process.

Box Tops Galore

Fun Fact: My team Pine 4 collected $7.70 in box tops in ten months.

These box tops were given to the elementary school where my mom works, to help pay for field trips. Box tops are an easy way to donate to schools through items you already buy. Most of these box tops came from granola bars, but I’ve seen them on trail mix, Ziploc bags, cereal, and Pillsbury crescent rolls. Don’t forget to save your box tops and donate them to a local school!
