Community Service

Find a Way to Give Back!

Your support is vital to keeping your state homeschool organization alive, active and robust, and it is so easy to give.


Add community service to your curriculum! Teach your children the importance of giving back by involving them in a community service project to benefit HOME! Donating your bottles and cans is just one way you can add to HOME's efforts to support homeschool families throughout the year. Explore more options below.


There are two ways to donate your bottles and cans!

1. Return your bottles and cans to a local redemption center and send the donation to HOME!

2. Bring your bottles and cans to convention and deposit in one of HOME's donation bins.

Add a HOME Unit Study!

You can help your children learn the value of giving back by purchasing HOME's unit study The Character of Giving. In this study, you will learn more about people throughout history whose giving has changed the world for the better. You will also create your own plan for giving that will have an impact on the community in which you live. 


Can't commit to a service project right now?

Life is busy! We completely understand. You may find it easier to simply make a financial donation. Thank you so much for your support!
