Why Community Service Is Important


    Community service is one of the most important things you can do not only for others, but yourself as well. This past year I have become very active in the Blackford High School student council, and in this club we do almost everything for the community or the school. Some of the things I’ve participated in recently have been stuff like playing bingo with the residents at the nursing home, ringing Salvation Army bells, and helping with the senior citizen prom, and many more. Having the privilege to do these things and having the opportunity to talk to people less fortunate people have opened up my eyes to many things I’ve never even thought about. You get to hear the stories of the people who you are helping and you realize that you are actually making a difference in someone’s life. Being able to help your community changes your personality completely and you appreciate what you are able to experience so much more. So, what I’m trying to say is that you should try to be a good and helpful person at least once in your life.
