Helping Others
February 27, 2015. By Athena Rapinan

My dad and I had a couple opportunities to volunteer at a shelter organization called Loaves and Fishes, located at Saint Maria Goretti Church, and fed homeless and families in need.

On the days I volunteered, I helped prepare the food, served fruits and bread, and mopped the floor after dinner. While I was serving meals, I observed three things:

  • Food was not wasted.
  • People said please and thank you.
  • They also took extra food home for their families.

I also learned a few things while volunteering:

  • It is good to help others.
  • Appreciate what you have.
  • Try to do good things.

When I was there, I also made some new friends, Vanessa and Sara, which I hope to see again sometimes soon. Volunteering was actually pretty fun, and I can not wait to do it again. You should try to volunteer too!
