A Review of Monday

This morning we went to a garden! It was a fun experience and much better than I expected! Later, we served the homeless. This was such a humbling experience and was very fulfilling to see the faces light up when I gave homeless their baby clothes and shoes! – Harmony

In the evening we got the opportunity to help an organization that feeds and helps the homeless or people who can’t afford the things we take for granted. We interacted and talked to the people there and saw how their lives may be that day. It gave me a great understanding of how lucky I really am. You got to see the happiness on their faces when they got new shoes or a meal for that day. It was truly an amazing experience. -Sidney

This morning we got to go to a food pantry! It was fresh food day, so the trucks were delivering food to the pantry. One of the things that stood out to me was that the people who were there to get food for themselves and their families also helped bring in all the food and help sort it on the tables. I helped bring in the food from the trucks, and we made an assembly line to pass the food down. It was a fun experience because we got to work with the people we were going to give food to later. Everyone one was so kind, and they all had smiles on their faces as we passed the food down, even when I would make a mistake. It was especially humbling to see their faces when I helped them pick out small bakery items because they were so happy and excited to choose their own baked good when we take that for granted all the time. This experience was truly eye opening. – Corinne
