WASHINGTON (AP) - It's another call for public service from President Barack Obama.
He says all Americans should help out in their communities. That could mean reading to children or repairing basketball courts.
The basketball-playing president taped a message for Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix. The White House released excerpts ahead of the broadcast. Obama's taped message will air at halftime.
The president is encouraging people to visit a Web site - www.USAService.org - to find jobs that need done near their homes. He says everything from putting together care packages for troops and fixing up basketball courts can help.
