If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? One project I partnered with the Oshkosh Fire Department in a Toy and Food Drive. In this project, my role was to get the word out about donating toys, food, or cash donations to the Oshkosh Fire Department. Then, all those donated items went out to families who were less fortunate during the holiday season. The feeling that I helped make people's holiday season happy is such a rewarding feeling.
