Earn Service Hours: Volunteers Needed to Help Beautify Coral Springs

Keep Coral Springs Beautiful

By: Chris Brunner

The City of Coral Springs is offering community service hours along with a free lunch in exchange for volunteers who will help keep the city beautiful.

As part of a city-wide clean-up program, Adopt-A-Street program and the Community Foundation of Broward, volunteers working with team captains will help clean different areas throughout the city on Saturday, January 27, from 9 to 11:30 a.m.  Along with earning service hours, there will be raffles for participants.

Oh yes, and lunch will be provided to volunteers after the clean-up.

Volunteer forms available at www.CoralSprings.org/volunteer or e-mail volunteer@coralsprings.orgIf you missed this date, there will be more throughout the year.  Sign up so you will be on the list for the next city-wide clean-up program.

    Is there a difference between service hours and forced labor or use of another word.

  • yongo

    Forcing children to do something they do not want to do is usually not accepted in our society and may be illegal in some places.

      What if the child wants to give back to community… is it forced labor?

        Definitely is not volunteering is a great thing and should be considered by everyone as a way to help someone or to give back to the community. Forcing students to volunteer is something else. When a student doesn’t want to earn service hours he is punished that doesn’t seem right in a free country.
