“I’ve started this campaign to encourage people to invest in their communities by devoting at least 1-hour of their personal time to some type of volunteer activity. It’s called: The 1- Hour - A - Week - Campaign for Community Betterment. Everyone can devote at least 1 hour a week towards the variety of actions that come under the heading of volunteerism. One can read to a child, help out at your child's school, or just be a friendly companion to a senior citizen. When taking a walk, one can bring a bag along and pick up trash. People are always needed to do a variety of tasks for community service organizations. Pick the one you would like to volunteer for and give them a call. I am sure they will gladly take your 1 hour a week of donated time! The “list” of things that people can do is virtually endless.” said Gardner.
