20 Ideas for Week 2 of #LightTheWorld: Light Your Community

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

This year, the Church has split it’s “Light the World” campaign into four distinct weeks, with each focusing on a different sphere you can influence for good.


For the second week of December, we are encouraged to light our communities. If you aren’t sure where to begin, here is a list of helpful ideas with varying degrees of time commitment and planning.

  1. Visit JustServe.org to view local service opportunities!
  2. Find the social media accounts for your city or town and your city officials. Follow them to stay informed about what is going on in your community.
  3. Register to vote.
  4. Introduce yourself to someone who lives near you that you do not know.
  5. Wake up a bit early and carefully clean the snow off someone’s windshield.
  6. Visit a local nursing home and sing Christmas carols.
  7. Donate toys to a local children’s hospital.
  8. Volunteer at or make a donation to a homeless shelter.
  9. Offer to go on visits with the missionaries in your ward or stake.
  10. Support a small business by making a purchase.
  11. Join (or start!) an interfaith choir for the season.
  12. Donate blood.
  13. Do you have a special skill or talent? Volunteer to teach a class to others in your neighborhood or ward. You can even contact your local community center to offer your skills.
  14. Donate books to a local school.
  15. If you see a stray shopping cart in the parking lot, go grab it and put it away so it doesn’t damage any cars.
  16. Choose to take public transportation for a day to help the environment.
  17. Visit this link to learn more about helping refugees in your community.
  18. Offer water to public workers who shovel streets and driveways when you see them.
  19. Ask your bishop or branch president how you can sponsor a family in your ward for Christmas.
  20. Get together with your ministering sisters and brothers and find a way to serve together.
