Jessica participated in several community service events for the month of March. She gave up her own time to volunteer at a nursing home in Brandon, where she spent hours singing for the residents. She volunteered at a mission center called Beth-El which is located in Wimauma, FL. At Beth-El she helped paint buildings, packaged over 800 toiletries and then distributed them weekly to families in the area. She was also a site leader for the Bulls Spring Break at Immokalee, FL. She spent her spring break building houses for Habitat for Humanity. Jessica helped the citizens of Immokalee by rebuilding their community center, tutoring local elementary children, and mentoring high school students regarding the importance to obtain a college education.
