What will we make better today?

My company is encouraging employees to participate in community service activities by allowing us up to two full days to volunteer during work hours. What would be an appropriate activity for a small group to do together?

Our 11-person department would like to choose a group service activity for at least one of those days. We’re well-educated, communicate well, and we’re motivated to do a good job on whatever activity we choose. But we don’t have collective skills that lend themselves to a particular activity. Most of us qualify as members of Generation X and we can participate in physical tasks, although I don’t think we’d like to do eight hours of back-breaking labor. I’d like to offer the group options beyond working in a soup kitchen or participating in a Habitat for Humanity building day, the two activities that keep getting mentioned. One we've got a couple of reasonable options, we'll choose one to do. We’re located in the Northeast U.S., if that helps. Thanks!
