Survey shows most kids do volunteer work

I surveyed 100 kids in seventh and eighth grades at my school to find out if they did any volunteer work. Here is what I found out:

Yes, I volunteer: 72

No, I haven't yet: 28

Volunteering is a great way to help others in your community, school or church. It is also good to put on your college applications.

Here are some of the things that kids in my school have done. They have volunteered at nursing homes, cleaned up beaches and parks, donated food to the church or helped raise money for a charity because it was the right thing to do and it made them feel good afterward.

I think it is really great that people are helping out in the community on their free time.
