I was also very happy to donate clothes to the Freshman Year Experience Yard Sale. The money was used for the Valdosta Sate University Relay for Life Team. The community service I enjoyed the most was the Special Needs Awareness Day. It was a great opportunity and very rewarding to work with the special needs children. It truly showed me that any special needs child can accomplish anything. I am very glad I was able to participate in community service throughout Valdosta, Georgia.
