- Letter to CPO for electronic equipment for Harper: YAC wish list Dylan and Sahanya?
* Letter to Mothers for Audiovisual equipment: Dylan, Hannah, and Sahanya will update letter status. Letter should be ready by the end of February. Mrs. Clay bullet points from her perspective below.
- Harper is used for many kinds of meetings. The technology requested will help those meetings run more efficiently
- YAC has very little time to do the amazing job they do of getting our teens to be active in the community. To change the location of meetings in order to view videos and skype or do google hangouts with non-profit organizations takes time and is confusing. Being able to do everything at Harper without having to request a new will make YAC's job easier and more efficient.
- The overflow of chapel goes to Harper. If the chapel experiences are videotaped, people in Harper will not only hear it, but will be able to be part of the experience via video screen.-Weekly agenda's are currently only viewed by officers. Meetings will be more interactive if the agenda items and reflective pictures could be shared during "real time at meetings."
- Daily announcements and service opportunities will be made available on the screen daily. It will be a reliable, current account of the service and youth board opportunities available with videos stating the mission, vision , and purpose of the organizations seeking volunteers.

Are you a giver or a Grinch?
Tis the season for generosity. But how important is it to you to help others? To find out—and get tips for becoming more altruistic—take this quiz, which is based on a scale developed by psychologist Gary S. Nickell of Moorhead State University.
Please answer the below questions as honestly as possible; there are no right or wrong answers. For the first 20 questions, please indicate how much you agree or disagree with each statement.
The last five questions are about you, and they'll be used by our research team to better understand how altruism relates to factors like age and gender. We'll report next month on what the scores suggest about the Greater Good community.
When you're done, you'll get your score, learn more about the benefits of altruism, and find resources for boosting your habits of helping.
