Mayor's Award

Every Tuesday I go and volunteer at my church for AWANA.  I help out with kids 6 years-8 year olds.  On Saturday I occasionally help out at my church in God's Storehouse, where I help those in my community who can't afford food and sometimes clothing.  Another way I help out in my community is whenever I see some get together for volunteers I go and help out!  For example, this Saturday I will be coming to the school at 8:30 to help clean up the school with the organization "Helping Hands" run by Julie Jones.  

Students at Laguna Middle School have the opportunity of receiving the Mayor's Award for community service.  The Students go into the office and pick up forms where they fill out and turn them in to get credit for all their hours they have done and put towards helping out their community.  To be eligible for the Mayor's Award you need to have at least 30 hours of volunteer work.  "Oh my gosh, That's so simple! Okay guys I'm going to get that Mayor's Award thing..." I recall hearing after telling my friend about what my community form was about. As of right now I have 63.25 hours of community service.
