Gift wrapping drive 2019: We gathered donations to purchase gifts for ages ranging from 3 to 13. Once we had received the desired number of gifts, we wrapped them and distributed them to Mosaic community members.
Virtual 5K, May 2020: Working with Mosaic, we helped organize the virtual 5k, which entailed gathering photos and videos from participants, reaching out to other students to participate, and organizing a workout celebration at the end of the 5K. We reached out to a bootcamp organization called AARMY, and even got H.E.R. to perform.
Backpack Drive, September 2020: To start the school year, the Mosaic teen board organized a backpack and school supply distribution drive. We determined the number of backpacks we needed, and began raising donations for the supplies. Once all the supplies had arrived, we began packing the backpacks. Once done, we brought them to the Mosaic headquarters and distributed them.
Gift card drive 2020: Rather than doing a gift wrapping drive this holiday season, we decided to do a virtual gift card drive. This still entailed gathering donations and distributing gift cards, but it was all done virtually.
