When I was in 7th grade, I volunteered at a retirement home. I served dinner to the residents twice a week. It started out as community service hours for religion class, but when my 10 hours were up I stayed with it for another 6 months or so. I eventually stopped, but I look back on that time fondly.
Now, I try and volunteer at the boys school as much as possible. I am a member of the school council and help out with whatever events I can. I also try to make it into their classes whenever possible. Last year was wonderful as I was able to help out in Mr. J's class weekly. Even though I rarely saw him, I loved the time I spent with his classmates.
At this point, the school is the only place that I volunteer, but I do hope to change that in the future. I would like to help out at the local food cupboard.
Do you volunteer your time or services in your community? I would love to hear how!
