Wikipedia defines community service as donated service or activity that is performed by someone or a group of people for the benefit of the public or its institutions.
One of the things that I take great pride in is being a part of this great community here in Lebanon. There are so many opportunities to get involved, and anyone who knows me is aware of my community involvement. But I am not writing this post to talk about what I do.
I am writing this to encourage everyone to take some time every month and give back to your community, no matter where you live. Whether it’s in Lebanon or any of the other surrounding communities, look for a way to help someone and to support your schools, churches, chamber of commerce, and all the other organizations that do so much for us and for our town.
There are so many unsung heroes out there that nobody knows who are always giving everything they have to make sure someone else has a better life or has the help they need. They serve as role models for all of us. In every community, there is always a need and the best way to fulfill these needs is with your involvement and community service.
So this week, take a look around, find a need or a place where you can fit in, and get involved.
