How do you provide community service?

I have provided community service by helping with the fall and spring blood drives the past 2 years, I have been able to do local park clean ups to help our environment, and also have been able to make care packages for people in need. I have also volunteered to do community service on my own as well. At the beginning of quarantine my family and I passed out lunches to families in need in our community. I did that from March to May at least once every week.
Greeters/Invocators needed 
We are need of volunteers to invocate (can be on Zoom or in-person) and greet members (online and in-person) for each week's meeting.  Please consider volunteering for a date. Thank you.
