In regard to community, I have volunteered for my clubs, DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), BPA (Business Professionals of America), NTHS (National Technical Honor Society), Cross Country and others. From helping the club itself to representing the club through charitable acts, such as making christmas a little better for military families, or helping at assisted living centers. My parents taught me at a young age how to be a considerate
Throughout my life I always thought the little things that we do to help people in our community are the things that made the biggest difference. I learned in church one day on a Sunday about how to improve ourselves to get closer to God. The pastor said that we are so busy with our daily activities that sometimes we get distracted on things that matter the most. Sometimes even though we might be busy, we should just take a brief moment to help others in need. That is why I find community service important because you are not just building our career we are also building our character as a leader and as a citizen.
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
Helping those in need is also a big part of my life. I like to volunteer my time to help those in need who I may not necessarily know. I may not know how exactly my volunteering helps them but I know that my work has made an impact on their life. I think it is important to help those in need even if you do not know them. I being helping and giving back to the community has helped me become more understanding and selfless.
I give back to my community by collecting and donating canned goods to my local food bank. I understand the situation from those that need it because my family has had times where we needed the
I will shortly be receiving my Bachelor's Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration on business. I will soon leave the world of studies and enter what is commonly referred to as "the real world." While this thought is someone frightening, especially given the current economic situation the nation faces, it is also exciting as well. I believe that crossing this threshold will change the way I view my role in the community, as well as the impact I will have on the community when I graduate. No longer will I see myself as a "child" in society, taking what society has to offer but never thinking of giving back. Instead, I am soon to become a fully fledged member of the community, with responsibilities to the community as a whole.
I have participated in many activities that served to help others such as, taking my time to help at the Adult’s Day Care, help with anything that is needed at the nursing home, and on the weekends I would volunteer at the Youth Basketball Summer League by working at the concession stand, collecting ticket money, work for the scoreboard, and coach for my team. I also believe it is better to give than to receive. I donate money and toys to the St. Jude Children Research Hospital as well as giving to the Wounded Warriors. In addition to giving to the Wounded Warriors, my father and I participated in the cook off in honor of the warriors that have fought for our
One deciding to serve their surrounding community in an attempt to better the lives of people living in that community is one of the most selfless actions one individual person can perform. Throughout my time in high school career I committed myself to serving the broader community in order to better society whether it be me serving as Co-President of Life is Delicious or raising money for Special Olympics Connecticut by doing the Penguin Plunge.
I do many severces to my community. I give money and support PETA against animal cruelty. I donate to many organizations such as Doctors Without Borders and St.Jude's
I feel that after all of the sacrifices that have been made by the community for my benefit, I have an obligation to give back and re-pay what has been given and more, I have an immense amount of appreciation and gratitude toward my community and all they have done for my peers and I. Community service also plays a big role in my involvement in the youth group at First Baptist Church of Bryson City. each year, a group of teenagers, including myself, participate in multiple community service projects -- whether they are as close to home as the Hospital Hill Road clean-up, or a far away as mission work in Port-au-Prince, haiti. I have been involved in many community service projects, because giving back to my community is something that simply gets done without
Actively participating in the betterment of my community is a trait that my family has instilled in me. It not only makes the lives of others better but makes me feel satisfied in providing them that service, that being said I try to help whenever I can and wish to continue doing so for the rest of my life.
“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul motivated by love.”
I think that part of the idea of giving to the community is to inspire others that came from another place that moved to their community. I think that because, in a small town like Honokaa, the community is everything to show for in our town that has no special features. We have a small community but that can also a great thing I remember that a lot of people would come to offer volunteer work to help others, like the work with did with the forest next to the park we pulled to king grass, and when people came to help make a new teachers lounge for the school, I donate the clothes that I can fit the salvation army in our town. The idea of giving back to our community is an idea that I was raised with, it is an idea that made me think about different people than myself it made me not be selfish in what I do and buy like if I buy something can my family also play use it and if its clothes I would give it the salvation army that is located in our time. When I was around 6 I was more selfish and want to always get something when we come to a store, I would rarely share anything with my sisters or cousins but when I grew up I became more influenced by the idea to give back to people or the
I am committed to many different community events including Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald house, and M-Fuge. Within each of these events, I contribute my time, talent, and treasure to address others issue of inequality. Special Olympics is a community service group that helps disabled and diseased men and women bowl. This community service event means a lot to me because I have built relationships with the people. Another thing that I like it that there are Teams, but they are all very kind, nice, and loving to each other. Everyone's there to help one another and support each other. One example of this is when anyone gets a strike or spare, everyone I cheering for them giving them high fives and hugs! Another community service I do is volunteering at the The Ronald McDonald house. At the Ronald McDonald house, we make all the families staying there dinner and desert. This community service means a lot to mean because I feels good to feed those in need of food, who are poor because their trying to provide for their children. The last type of community service I do is attending a camp called M-Fuge. My youth group has gone to Belmont University (Tennessee) and North Greenville University (South Carolina) both for the M-Fuge Camp. Within this camp, we go to local underprivileged and poor schools throughout the city, helping them with homework
