Community service is defined as services volunteered by individuals or an organization to benefit a community or its institutions http://www.thefreedictionary.com/community+ser vice
A nonprofit, Christian Housing Ministry that has helped to build over 500,000 decent, affordable houses and served 2.5 million people worldwide. Their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live It was founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller and his wife, Linda. http://www.habitat.org/h ow/factsheet.aspx http://www.habitat.org/h ow/factsheet.aspx
For habitat for humanity I helped to build a house. I also volunteered for the South Georgia Classis golf tournament where I made sure the crowd remained quiet while the golfers teed off, made sure the golfers were hydrated, and kept the bibs organized and in order.
Helps someone in need Puts ones own life in perspective Gives back to the community and benefits the community Creates a positive outlook on life It can keep kids out of trouble
I think I have become a better person by volunteering. Doing community service makes me appreciate what I have and what I have been blessed with. I try not to take my life for granted after seeing what other people have to endure. It is always an eye-opener for me. It is refreshing to know that my help can make some else’s life easier.
