Volunteering

Today my mom & I volunteered at the local community center.

My step dad picked me up & drove both my mom and I to & from the center. This was due to the extreme weather outside. We had a great time,even though I am exhausted, it was very busy. In our community the gift give away, this year covers 1000 children in the area. Today we had families for 600 of the children, and 400 more will be tomorrow. I have been helping with this every year for at least 10 years, maybe more. It is always worth it, so many people are helped and it feels good to help others.

I was happy to see so many people helping out this year, despite the bad conditions in the area.
So get out there and volunteer, it is worth it for everyone.

That is so wonderful! I've been meaning to go over & volunteer for meals on wheels. I don't have much free time but I really want to use what I do have helping others :) Thanks for the reminder!!

what an awesome thing to do!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! You could always try again to apply for Lollishops :) I've heard of people not getting in and then going and fixing a few different things and reapplying and then they were accepted :)
