Saturday, May 25th, Carama is inviting the public to take part in a one day community service initiative called “I Love To Serve” where students of all ages will get involved in some type of community service.

Carama vows to take part himself, “I’m committing to doing 24 hours of community service all day.”

Carama says he hopes to do lawn maintenance for those who need assistance, take a group of boys to a movies, visit a senior citizens center, among other things.

“We hope this becomes part of their lives, that it’s something they engage with throughout the year and not just one day,” said Carama.

To help spread positivity, Carama is encouraging those who participate to use the hashtag #ILoveToServe and #BelievingInForever.

“Service is something everybody can do,” said Carama.
