Community service activity options include environmental cleanup and preservation, mentoring, providing services to those in need, outreach and collecting donations. Individuals perform community service actions on their own, through a community group or by volunteering with an established charity or nonprofit organization.
Community service actions are acts that benefit either the community at large or a specific group within the community. The variety of community service projects available allows people of all backgrounds and abilities to participate. A person with little money can help by volunteering time instead of donating money. A person who cannot physically help can spread awareness or donate money.
