Alex joined a volunteer community service group in his city. He is very fond of his neighbourhood, and wants to make it even better. The group tore down an old building and now they are cleaning up. They needed to carry out this service only on weekends, and it has taken a long time. Normally his neighbourhood could not afford to tear down old buildings, but with the volunteers, they didn’t have to pay for labour, so it was cheaper. Alex and his friends are proud of their accomplishment.
