During this course I realized the meaning of both and the responsibilities that both imply. A definition of social responsibility that I found particularly poignant and concise comes from Entrepreneur Magazine,
What does community service means to me? Well, to me community service mean helping your community become a better place. When you do things for your neighborhood, it makes you feel like a better person. There are all sorts of activities you can do in your community. You can work with children at school, work with the elderly, or help people that are less fortunate and make their day very special. Community Service is very important because it gives you a chance to bond with the people in your neighborhood. It will also give you a chance to give back to your community , you’ll learn a lot from your experience, and you’ll make a difference in someone’s life. I recommend a lot of people to go out and make a difference.

The acts of community service I have participated in FBLA has taught and strengthen my belief that charity is the most important gestures any person can due to have a beneficial impact in the world; is to help a person in need. For instances, our organization has collected Christmas gifts for underprivileged children in the Henry County community each year and the act of giving a child without access to toys for the holidays something as simple as a toy car has brought the greatest
I have been a part of different activities for my community service. I have helped the TLC preschool afterschool with cleaning tables and toys once all the children have gone home. I have also been to the shelly baird school where they disabled kids go for schooling and helped out there with the students doing their work and played games .I am currently in “Dude Be Nice Club” and recently we participated in project night night where we would gather donated security blankets a book or stuffed animal and deliver them to children who have very little in homeless shelters. My community service in this case helped me realize that there are people out there who need some encouragement to help them get back on their feet and realize in life that
“Food Bank/ Pantry” The Field Education Experience I chose Food bank/ Pantry, is a non-profit, charitable organization that distributes food to those who have difficulty purchasing enough food to avoid hunger. Food banks/ pantries are usually faith based operations. However, they can operate on a much larger scale, such as a warehouse (Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Raleigh, NC.). The warehouse act as a storage that holds large quantities of food for smaller agencies. Some of the smaller agencies are churches, schools, food pantries, homeless shelters, also soup kitchens just to name a few (www.foodbankcenc.org).
Winston Churchill’s quote "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" embodies what community service is really about. Over the years I have had the pleasure of working for several organization and volunteering in a variety of different areas. There has been a community service experience that changed my life tremendously though. From 2009 until 2014 I had the amazing opportunity to work for the Nash-Edgecombe County Teen Court Program and doing so profoundly shaped my future.
Throughout my life, I have often felt that I did not belong to any particular community. I have attended schools in both Silt and New Castle, and played on their soccer teams, all while living out in the county. Much of my time has been spent in Glenwood Springs,
Over the course of my two years at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver), a certain nonprofit organization has really stood out to me. This particular non-profit is a critical piece to the MSU Denver community and the greater Denver community as a whole. Food for Thought currently provides food for six impoverished title one elementary schools, where many children would go hungry over the weekends otherwise. MSU Denver students and Denver business leaders volunteer for Food for Thought on a weekly basis during the school year. Every Friday morning, volunteers pack sacks of food into crates, which later get shipped out to the schools in need. Ever since I volunteered for Food for Thought the second semester of my freshman year,
As a student, I have demonstrated many works of service to my community and school. Service opportunities have shaped me into the person I am today and these projects have made me realize how fortunate I am for all that I have. While I've been doing these service projects through the years, it has been a pleasure seeing the joy on the faces of people that aren't as fortunate as I am. Service projects that I have completed include managing the fish booth at the St. Leo's Parish Festival, being an altar server at St. Leo's Parish, helping cook dinner for the Ridgway Fire Department during carnival day setup, participating in the St. Marys Light Up Night by dancing, and Christmas caroling to local residents. I also participated in a zombie/princess

At my high school students are also required to complete community service hours in order to graduate however, I have always done community service for numerous years now. This summer will be my sixth year volunteering as a counselor at a local vacation bible school camp. When I was younger, my sisters and I all went through the camp and we have truly enjoyed giving back and helping out in whichever way we can. Through serving specifically this camp, but also through volunteering for other groups with children, I have discovered my passion for aiding children. Along with vacation bible school I have also been a homework helper at a local Elementary school, and I have been a camp counselor at high school soccer and basketball camps for young
At first when I found out I was going to have to do this essay I was not too excited. I had no idea what I could possibly write about because I did not know that things I did on the average day could be considered community service.
More than a destination at the end of the day, a community is a place people feel at home and a place where people want to feel safe at. Community responsibilities area unit a personality's duties or obligations to the community and embody cooperation, respect and participation. The thought goes on the far side thinking and acting as people to common beliefs concerning shared interests and life. A basic community responsibility is voting in elections.
