BPA Acts of Service

Change. Impact. Difference!

Commitment to service is a hallmark of engaged citizens and strong leaders. We encourage you to spend some time engaged in acts of service while at the conference. There are several opportunities to get involved.

American Red Cross Blood Drive

The need for blood is constant, and blood donors are vital for a healthy and reliable blood supply. You will feel good knowing you’ve helped change a life. Those donating blood will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to the BPA on-site store.

“A Million Thanks” Letters to Veterans

Write letters of thanks and support to those who have served our country. The organization A Million Thanks will send the letters to active, reserve, and veteran members of the military.

“A Smile A Day” Thank You Cards

Thank those who work behind the scenes. Whether it’s the bellhop who helped with your luggage, the housekeeper who cleaned your room, or someone else who positively affected your NLC experience, write a thank you card to show your gratitude.

Special Olympics Chain of Love

Let’s create the longest chain in BPA history! Donate $1 (online during NLC registration or on-site) per link to decorate and add to the chain that will be carried during the Special Olympics walk.

Walk for Special Olympics Posters

Support Special Olympics Walk participants by creating colorful, uplifting posters that bring energy and motivation along the route.

Friday, April 28 (3:00–5:00 pm)

Coloring Books for Kids

Add some color and a smile to a hospitalized child’s day. Donate a new coloring book or help assemble coloring books that will be donated to local hospitals.

Buddy Baskets

Moving to transitional or permanent housing can be difficult for homeless veterans lacking basic household items. Donate items such as bathroom tissue, rubber gloves for cleaning, dust pan with hand broom, shower curtain, bath towels, or plastic eating utensils. Then help assemble kits that will be donated to those in need.
