Commitment hours on activities section of common app

Over the summer, I volunteered at the Red Cross but my hours varied each week. Sometimes I only volunteered 5 hours a week while other times I did 10 hours a week. How should I report my hours per week for this activity in the activities section of the common app? Thanks.

I would suggest doing an average of how many hours. So total up the number of hours you volunteered, then find that average and on the common app just report you volunteered X amount of hours per week on average. Hope this helps. Lmk if you need any clarification.
