Reviewed resources available. Started to sort and organize clothing donations.
This volunteer experience was one of my favorites! It was so fun and refreshing to be able to play with kids for a few hours. All the people who worked there were so genuine and sweet as well so it was a great environment to be in.
Met the director and mended a quilt while I was there.
Since this is listed as an open opportunity, I emailed wanting to know more details and to see how they wanted this to work. I let them know that I couldn't start until 1/25 and would be available to start between 9 and 10. I showed up around 9:15, went inside and waited for over an hour to find out the basics of what does and doesn't need sorted. Never saw anyone so I went to my car to call and email to find out what to do.
Thanks for a great opportunity!
It was actually a lot of fun. I enjoyed conversing with the lovely people who work there. They are all wonderful people. We had a good routine going with stacking envelopes. We definitely showed teamwork.
It was really fun! Not difficult and everyone was so nice. I would definitely do this again next holiday season!
Was very fun and I thought it was cool to feel like I was actually making a difference by helping put together letters for their biggest fundraiser!
Was a very fun and rewarding experience!
I spent about two hours in the rain pulling weeds from the outdoor playground, but although my fingers and toes were a little bit blue by the end of that, it sure felt great to know I was making someone’s life better. Most of the other tasks were done at this point in the day, but I certainly had plenty to do! I’ll definitely be coming back to FPP next weekend so I can help more!
It was great volunteering for a place that helps homeless families and gives them amazing opportunities.
