What kind of activities are you passionate about? What do you like to do? What field do you want to go into? You shouldn't be picking service activities based on what you think will make you look good, because that in reality makes you kind of a boring applicant. Do what you are passionate about or what you want to learn more about! If you need examples, comment some of your interests and I can suggest.

My thought would be service that involves one-on-one interaction such as Room in the Inn, a food kitchen for the poor and underserved, Meals on Wheels, visiting with retired elderly. You can also feel free to do service that is not as direct such as a food drive or a clothing drive.
