Community service is a vital part of everyone's lives. It is important for someone to share in this experience. It can be done through our #organization called #bookmarkyourlife. Anyone can get involved! Doesn't matter who you are, how old you are, or where you come from, community service will leave you feeling like you've done your part. 

For those of you who don't know what #communityservice entails, it is someone or a group of people who perform to #benefit the public or its institutions. It is different from voluntary work because the work is not always done voluntarily, but for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is required by a school to complete previous to graduation or as mandates for certain classes. It may also be a court requirement for violating a law or committing a minor crime. This is called #communitypayback. Military service also requires this. 

It is important to give back to a community that gives you so much. Things such as cleaning up litter in local parks, handing out food at soup kitchens, midnight runs, fundraisers, and bake sales are all examples of common community service ideas. 

If anyone has any ideas about future community service projects, feel free to share your ideas by emailing us! You can also learn more about our organization by visiting our website
