Volunteering at the shelter

 

††††††††††† Last Sunday, January 13, the girl scouts and I, had a event at the Family Supportive Housing Shelter, where we bought the ingredients and made the food from scratch. We spent many hours planning and making this event successful. Honestly, when we planned this, I didnít think we can make it happen. But when the day actually came, it turned out really good. The people, the food, everything, were amazing. We worked together and even though we got distracted a lot, we managed to finish in time and got to serve the food we made. When each family came in, I had a huge smile on my face because they looked happy. When people came to get seconds, I was thrilled because they actually liked what we made! Seeing the smile on everyoneís faces made my day. I was afraid that some people were going to be mean, but they turned out to be really nice and thoughtful. And when they thanked us several times for being there, I was ecstatic. They really liked what we made and Iím glad I was there. Volunteering at the shelter and making this event work changed my views on things. That I should be thankful for what I have and that when people have it rough, they still keep a smile on their faces. I really like helping people out and I will do it again in the future. My goal right now is to do things like volunteer at the shelter or make peopleís day. I hope we can do something like this again!!
