Summer is the perfect time to contribute to your community. With all the free time you get in the summer you can join an organization or just donate a little bit of time to something you believe you can help with.
volunteering is a great way to feel better about oneself through helping others. It also helps someone appreciate what you have and gets you involved with a community. One could also make new friends who care about the same causes and ideas as you.
