Student’s Name: ASKIA

Dunbar High School

413 Community Service Hours

What Community Service Means to Me:

Community service is a powerful aspect that many people overlook. When I participate in community service opportunities, I see it as a way to give back to my community. I actually enjoy doing community service because I know that many people do not contribute to the well being of their community. I see community service as a way to keep what is left of the ecosystem in my community intact because there are people out in the world that really don’t care.
