`Over the course of my stay at Longwood I have had many volunteer opportunities. The first being the chance to clean up a park with a few of my honors peers. We helped fill holes with rocks at a children’s playground as well as an outdoor gymnasium. Afterwards, we cleared grass and weeds from a volleyball court.
`Another volunteer opportunity I participated in was building a memorial garden.This garden, for the SPCA, was built in memorial for older dogs who had passed on without ever being adopted. We planted a tree, built a fence, and planted flowers in the mulch around a bench. The event was extremely rewarding and I was happy to give back to the community.
