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. I belong to Sigma Alpha Lambda (SJSU Chapter), a National Leadership and Honors
