I needed to complete all of my volunteer hours for high school. I wasn't sure where or how to help my community.
I think you should volunteer at a soup kitchen.
A Soup Kitchen?!? Why would I want to volunteer there?
At first, I was intimidated because I was the youngest person volunteering, however everyone made me feel very welcome.
Nice to meet you Jack and Brenda.
I started off by collecting dishes and enjoyed it so I stuck with it.
Can I take that from you?
After volunteering for a couple of weeks I realized how important it was to help the less fortunate.
Whenever I miss a week for hockey everyone asks if I won and how the game was.
We Missed you last week.
How was your game, did you win.
I have volunteered at Out of the Cold for two years now and I look forward to seeing familiar faces. Even though I have all of my volunteer hours I continue to go every week, because it has taught me the importance of putting others before myself and has made me a better person.
