As a member of the Interact club and the Spanish Honor Society, I provide my service in the community by helping out at events such as the Arc’s Annual barbecue, and by volunteering for AMOR at a local church. Amor is a program where we help serve food to younger Spanish speaking students, interact with them, and also help them with their homework.
