Service Projects

We perform different acts of service, enabling each member to affect change one step at a time, with an eventual goal of community transformation. Once our members select a beneficiary, performing a service project is a great way to fulfill the beneficiary’s needs.

TSO Members coordinate a variety of service projects as a way to help our community. TSO members have generously donated their time to cook and deliver lunch to Orangewood Foundation and coordinated collections for pantry and baby items for organizations such as Ronald McDonald House, Families Forward and the OC Rescue Mission. In addition, we have collected jackets, sweaters and blankets for families in Tijuana.

Do you have a service project idea? Please contact us.

Make and Take Lunch

Members generously donated food and delivered the “make and take lunch” to teens in need at the Orangewood Foundation in Santa Ana, California. Tennis Serves Others thanks these members who helped with the food donation, cooking, and delivering meals: ​ Jill Behrle, Stella Charton, ​Kelly Grunbeck, Dee Hall, ​Kevil Linn, Kristine Michaels, Dorene Spearman​.

Ronald McDonald House

Both members and non-members of Tennis Serves Others generously donated food and kitchen items to the Orange County Ronald McDonald House. Items given such as fruit snacks, noodles, plates, utensils, and baby wipes are helping to give comfortable “home away from homes” for the families of seriously ill children receiving treatment in Orange County hospitals.

Tennis Balls for Shelter Dogs

TSO Board members collected used tennis balls which were distributed to several animal shelters. TSO serves the animals in our communities too.

Serve A Family Program

During the holiday season, Tennis Serves Others’ members join in service to help low income families, seniors or veterans in need. Our goal is to “adopt” a few families each year providing necessities, gifts and ultimately love during this time of year.

TSO Goody Bags

This last year many TSO members gathered at a member’s house to assemble goody bags for Meals-on-Wheels seniors. With each goody bag, we wrote a “love all” note hoping to bring some cheer. We hope you join us in this annual event.
