Jim is also a role model for other operations that help the homeless all over the world. Today, these acts are considered to be heroic because he is improving and potentially helping to save many lives(CNN’S 2015). Modern day heroes are not based off their achievements on the battlefield or their commitment to their country, but more to what they do to help
People would look to them to help do grassroots level work and improve their community. The Boy Scouts were in almost every town and had complete knowledge of their community which was a big factor in their service. But how did this work help in the war effort during World

Depaul has good relationships with businesses around Virginia. They hold events to raise money around the community and help spread awareness and change for all the clients and families they work with. What type of ethical dilemmas have you had to deal with?
I would like to become an active member of Carrboro High School’s National Honor Society in order to benefit my community through service. I am immensely committed to serving and improving my community, as I have made distinctly clear with my 143 service hours. Through these service hours, I have focused on the improvement of the future community by helping disenfranchised refugee children coming from horrible living conditions in Western Africa, by teaching children about biology, chemistry, and scientific history, by preparing freshmen for their high school careers, by raising money to protect and aid voiceless animals hurt in car crashes and other human infringements, and by creating rain gardens, planting food crops, and decreasing Carrboro High School’s environmental
As a persistent volunteer, my passion to help others has been a significant trait of mine, I am blessed to have many opportunities to help my community since I have been in elementary. I volunteer at any event I am eligible for throughout my community whenever I have the chance. However, I do not limit myself to participating in community events. I help others in need by purchasing food for them or donating the clothes I don 't wear. Looking back at all the volunteer opportunites I take advantage of, Operation Santa will have a special place in my heart because of the joy the activity brings me.
I have had the unforgettable opportunity to personally raise $1,400 for kids to go to summer camp, whose families could not afford it otherwise. I have worked at food drives, homeless shelters, and kid’s programs in my town, in hopes to make someone’s day a little bit better and ultimately make my community stronger. These experiences shaped who I am today. While I cherish the experience I had making a difference in my own town, I am ready to grow and leave a positive impact somewhere else in the country.
First of all, I place a great emphasis on service. God mentions helping others in the Bible multiple times, and I consider this crucial. Because of this, I have made it a part of my daily life. Sometimes it is as simple as talking to someone, while other times I must travel to poverty-stricken areas or volunteer my time to work at homeless shelters.
In the past I have helped my local Catholic Church. I did many hours of community service serving out dinner to Catholics, helping set up games for the youth, helping set up and clean up yard sales, and helping anyone in need of assistance. Currently I try to help students around me with homework, notes, and helping them understand a specific subject more. In the future I would love to donate to as much charities as I can. As I would have a stable job, I would be able to help those who are less fortunate by donating.

In 2007, I, along with a few of my peers, founded the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild as a way to give back to our community. Since then, this nonprofit organization has raised thousands of dollars that has gone to support uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Throughout my middle school and high school years, I have been very involved with this group. When I had the opportunity to choose a service placement for this year, I immediately knew I would be doing my service through the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild because of my previous involvement with the guild and my passion for the cause the guild supports.
If I had $1000 to give to charity, I would donate the funds to my local Salvation Army in Manitowoc, WI. I have volunteered for this organization and I know how dedicated they are to serving the people and needs of the Manitowoc community. Since the volunteers and employees of Salvation Army chapters live in the community that they serve, they have an increased responsibility and commitment to their community that is evident through the way this organization is run. For example, when there became a need for affordable day care in the Manitowoc community, The Salvation Army started a day care center to meet this need. Thus, in addition to the trademark services associated with The Salvation Army, such as their Christmas drive and food pantry,
Now for more than 160 years of successful help to those in need, the visions are ever growing to fit the needs of families and the community around them. The support for stronger families means help to get them there, supplying legal advice for some, full health services, and special events and programs so everyone will grow together.
