One thing we have tried to do as a staff is help our team stay grounded. We live in a very small town, and often there is "college vs. community" conflict. After brain storming we came up with several ways our team could serve the community:
1) canned food drive for the local food pantry
2) visiting nursing homes to play games with the seniors
3) leaf/snow removal
4) all church work days
We have started to implement a few of these, I'll be honest, I wondered about the grumbling. I've been pleasantly surprised to hear the team has enjoyed being able to serve the community.
