If you're concerned about the future of our children, the quality of our schools, the safety of our neighborhoods, the homeless or hungry, battered women, abused children, the elderly, or the environment, 50 Ways to Help Your Community provides powerful examples and easy-to-follow instructions so you can make a difference in your community.

The people in this book are ordinary men, women, and youngsters who have started programs that you can become a part of, replicate, or adapt to your own community. Among those you will meet are:

-Brian Harries, a teenager who fosters racial understanding by pairing pen pals of various ethnicities
-Lou Ann Frees, a grandmother who enlists senior citizens to teach and nurture latchkey kids after school
-Bottomless Closet, a group of professional women who provide suitable clothing to job-ready women
-Pepper Provenzano, a modern-day Johnny Appleseed who organizes tree plantings in urban areas

Award-winning authors, Steve and Sharon Sloan Fiffer, have collected 50 stories that show how individuals, families, parent-teacher groups, students, service organizations, congregations, and corporations can turn their raw inspiration into action that will change the world - one community at a time.
