Looking for a show with a kind female protagonist who is eager to help other people. Preferably a character that is a little on the naive or slow side, but as a result is endearing.

Rinne no Lagrange's Madoka is exactly this, as she's the sole member of the community service-based jersey club at the start of the show, and spends all of her free time helping others out.

Shoujo Kakumei Utena
Versailles no Bara

Either version of this. Not ditzy but more endearing than the other mc's in this list.

Bottle Fairy has not just one, but four friendly female protagonists who like to help others!
If you're willing to try out manga, I definitely recommend Kitchen Princess!
