  10. 10. Community Service  Grassroots is an organization where women go when they are abused, or have nowhere else to go. I donate food, and clothes to here on a regular basis with my mom.  There is a similar organization where I give my old clothes to the women and children who live there.  My friends mom teaches at Arundel Middle School and several of her students are forced to live in their cars and she has to go grocery shopping for her students who aren’t able to buy food for themselves. The children have a very little amount of clothes and blankets. Very recently my mom and I donated bags and bags filled with old clothes and blankets to give to her who then gave to her children at the school.
  11. 11. Why Do I Do Community Service?  I participate in community service because I feel that there are so many children, teenagers, and adults, that need as much help as they can get. People most likely might think to themselves, “Oh, I don’t need to donate because people already do that,” but they are wrong. You cant continue to push things like this away because some donations are desperate, and others not as much. You should WANT to help people, not just feel the NEED to.
