I think that high schools generally define community service to be
something you don't like to do. Anyway, I stand behind you, would be
happy to call it community service, and I can also vouch for hours you
put in if you show me what you have done and tell me, honestly, how
long it took.

It would be real community service if you:

  - asked to 'rent' your school's computer lab for a saturday
  - run a linux workshop where people can come, install, play around,
    and ask general questions.

I've done that a couple of times and it was very successful.
