Summer is here and there is excitement all around! Beach days, carnivals, cotton candy, fun in the sun, ice cream, family cookouts, sleep-in mornings and time with friends are all yours for the taking. But there is more you can do that will make you happy and bring joy to others… COMMUNITY SERVICE!
Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in your community. During your summer break, carve out time to help others. Volunteering to help others is a great way to build your profile and it gives you experience in a field you may want to pursue. It allows you to meet other people, try new things and have fun while doing so. We have compiled a list of five reasons to do community service this summer!
