Service is important because it is an opportunity to help others less fortunate than you or people who just simply need help. It gives an opportunity for networking and builds a sense of community. It is important for Fontbonne to encourage to participate in community as a whole because together we can make BIG things happen. We are the face of our school so when people see that Fontbonne is volunteering, it gives us a good reputation. We want to share the love that Jesus shared with us when he died on the cross and this is one way we can show and example of Christ’s love. Showing Christ’s love is why volunteering is important to me personally. School volunteer days have influenced my thoughts on service and community contribution.
