This quarter in ecs we were doing volunteer work for our legacy project. I cleaned the Hearing Aid Institute property for my project. To start, there were many drawbacks and benefits of cleaning for them. One of the drawbacks was that there were a lot of drunk people walking through trying to talk to my brother and I. They'd come up to us and start talking and would keep getting closer to us so we walked to our car to get away from them. However, one of the many benefits is I got to spend some time together before he leaves home. Also, some of the other benefits were to see how we affected everyone who works there. We cleaned the parking lot which made it so the people in the front of the building don't have to look at a bunch of gross trash. We also cleaned where the people in the back of the building take their break so they have a cleaner place to sit outside. Last, I plan to give back to the community in a few ways when I get older. I plan to do more volunteer work as I get older. I also will donate my time to help people who are less fortunate. All in all, I believe that my volunteer experience was amazing.

Volunteering- a service someone does to help someone without getting/asking for something in return

Why someone might volunteer: to learn how to do something new or get experience, to achieve goals, to feel like they are doing something for their community,
