In honor of Missouri’s bicentennial. the Missouri Community Service Commission is challenging all Missourians to volunteer 200 hours in their local community.

Ways To Volunteer

The ideas of volunteerism are endless. Whatever one can think of to do to better the community would count. Here are a few ideas to get started. How about picking up trash along the road, alongside the river, at the park, or in town? Watering the plants around the square is beneficial. Find a senior and serve him. This could be through raking leaves or mowing the grass, possibly doing errands for him, or simply reading him a book. Helping at the food pantry is often a way to assist those in need.

What To Do Whan Done

Missouri Bicentennial has a website that one can go on and download a Community Service Challenge. You can record the hours of service along with the date and what was accomplished.
