The Importance of Community Service

April 18, 2009

To be a well rounded working woman, getting involved in community service events is essential to showing your peers that you have more to you than your 9-5 job. There are some great ways to help others in your community without putting a strain on your daily schedule. Some examples include volunteering at a local soup kitchen, visiting with elders in your community and cleaning up a local park.

The only stipulation for something to be service is that you are freely giving of yourself to someone or something else. For more examples of community service activities, check out http://www.rotarydistrict6630.org/resources/community-service-rec.html

This is a great example of community service, where it offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. To find your local Relay for Life event, visit http://www.relayforlife.org/relay/findevent

Just get out there and support the community where you live and work! It will make all the difference!
