Community Service


What is Community Service?

Community service is when someone performs an action like gardening, house keeping, fundraising, cleaning the highway and other things that are going to improve on his or her community. Some people do community service because its an option they get if they break the law. The option is commonly being in jail for a certain amount of time or doing community service for a few days or months.
