Tracing Community Donations
Donations play a crucial part in communities’ welfare as they are used to fund projects that improve people’s lives. In my community, donations are used to support the less privileged, such as homeless and low-income earners. At the same time, people’s contributions are used to undertake environmental activities that protect the ecosystem.
