Community Service by Michiko


At the Durham Academy Middle School we had a community service day. Our advisory went to the Durham Rescue Mission Thrift Store. When we got there we were told to go to racks of clothes and make sure they were all the same size. Then we organized the clothes by color. My friend Kay and I went over to the baby clothes section. We took all of the price tags off and put an X over the regular tags so that the workers would know which ones to put on discount. I felt really good having the chance to help other people who need things more than we do. Doing that for other people made me appreciate what I have and want to help other people more than before. I think that doing community service is a great way to help other people and when you are done you have a great feeling knowing you helped people.
