Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth of the 8th District participated in the National Day of Service commemoration Saturday, and encouraged all Americans to find some way to serve others.
“There are so many great ways to serve your country,” Duckworth said. “Whether it’s volunteering at a soup kitchen or nursing home, tutoring at a school, or helping to build affordable housing.
“We all have a responsibility to go into our communities and make a difference,” she said.
Duckworth also took part in a community service project at Ideal Academy in Washington D.C. and spoke at a rally on the National Mall.
