*Community service is healthy because you are relieving your stress by helping others, or your community out.
-soup kitchens, food drives, pick up trash, volunteer locally
*Short term effects:
-It makes you feel good
-Other people receive the help they need
*Long term effects:
-There can be long term effects on the community
-Example: freshly painted community center
*Reasons for choosing this method:
1. It is good for you because it provides physical and mental rewards
2. It saves money. If volunteers were to get paid for their work, they would receive about $15.39 per hour. Since they don't get paid, more money can be spent on local improvements.
3. Promotes growth of self- esteem
4. Able to strengthen your community
Examples: -Schools can be improved because volunteers tutor students.
-It can support families because people volunteer at daycares and nursing homes.
