Pagan Charity

So I was wondering if in any paganisms there is any emphasis on charity or good works. I know some folks subscribe to the concept of karma. Anyway, I see local Christian Churches offer free Community Dinners for people who might be struggling, and most of the Food Pantries in my City are run out of Churches.

The Christians also have traditions and institutions to help the sick, disabled, and the elderly. They have founded and run Hospitals, Schools, and Nursing Homes. A local Church runs subsidized housing for people with Intellectual Disabilities, for example.

So, the Christians seem to have a lot of this sort of stuff going on. I am just curious if there is ever a service attitude amongst Folks who identify as Pagan in one form or another.
