Of course, I'm not an admissions officer, but I would think that it's pretty easy to spot an applicant who piled on random EC's at the end of their career just in order to beef up their resume. If this is what you'd be doing, then I think the other posters are right- your time is better spent working on bringing up your GPA and LSAT score.
That said, if you're really interested in something for its own sake, and not only because it fills your resume, obviously you should do it. The idea about starting your own club/activity, or organizing the fundraiser, might also be good ones, because my sense is that the schools want to see not only that you were involved, but that you involved in a leadership role.
