Get involved by Paying It Forward from April 16-22, 2016.  This year, there is at least one group activity scheduled for each day of PIF Week, but we highly encourage EVERYONE to complete more than one individual activity each day. Whether it's helping someone take out their garbage, paying for the person behind you in the drive thru, or calling someone you haven't talked to in a long time ... PAY IT FORWARD!!!

Be sure to go online to report your PIF activities as you complete them.  And KEEP IN MIND, this list of activities is changing and being updated daily, so check back for the most current information.

April 16-22
