Some common places to do community service include local food banks, animal shelters, nursing homes and parks. Some national organizations that also provide good community service opportunities are Habitat for Humanity and the American Red Cross.
Community service at food banks involves collected non-perishable foods that can be distributed to impoverished families. Animal shelters often need volunteers to play with their animals and take dogs on walks. Nursing homes are good community service opportunities that involve conversing and socializing with seniors. Park districts often need volunteers to clean parks and pick up trash.
Habitat for Humanity is a charity organization that builds houses for families in need. The American Red Cross provides disaster relief and health services.
