Community Service Paper 2 When people hear that I did community service, they asked me "Did you get paid?" When I say no, they wonder why I did it. I tell them it is because is a great way to help those in need. Many of my school friends think that community service is just something you are forced to do for school. To me, community service is a way of giving back and to make me more aware of people in the world less fortunate than I am. I did my community service in two places. My first six hours of community services were served at Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart is a non-denominational, non-profit organization that provides integrated services on site, free of charge, to all people in need. It was founded in 1964, when Louise Benson, faith filled woman who felt compelled to take action as long as her neighbors in Santa Clara County were hungry and in need, made her first food basket delivery in downtown San Jose. Sacred Heart was incorporated in 1972, becoming a non-denominational and non-profit organization. Sacred Heart mission is to change lives and impact poverty by providing essential services, offering tools for self-sufficiency, and ministering with dignity, compassion and respect. Sacred Heart engage the community and inspire volunteers to love, serve and share.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
