Salvation Army, Homeworks, your Church, ...

Although this sounds really hard to believe, my son generally has a hard time getting his service hours completed each semester unless he signs up really early. The slots dry up pretty fast.

Habitat for Humanity, you give and get (knowledge), pretty good stuff! I am going to be part of a "Blitz Build" (8 days) this spring. Pretty exited about it.

Local soup kitchen. You'll learn a lot about a huge problem for this country - homelessness.

x2 on habitat. Good organization which goes way beyond simply handing out cheap houses.

I couldn't agree more. I never had a clue until I ran into an old friend who was having a bad time following a divorce. Never became homeless but it was close. I do all my volunteering at local food banks now.
