The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis. Our activities incite fun competition and a sense of accomplishment for our members and students affiliated with us. This provides for us a very comfortable environment in which students can be themselves and do what they love. Our Student Council, aside from offering our own physical service to our school and community, also helps other organizations with their events. We are the go-to group in the building.

“We see these people everyday. They come in for a meal or come every couple of weeks to get their haircut and we build a bond with them.” Taina decided to help the community because she grew up in the Bronx and she wanted to stay to make a difference for the people who are less fortunate than she was. POTS is the largest emergency food provider in the Bronx, feeding people mornings, afternoon, and evening. Taina is responsible for what dishes they make every day and keeps track of the inventory of food. She tries to bring in a different style so the community can enjoy their meals instead of feeling like they’re in a prison eating the same meals day in and day out.
Fortunately, the story doesn’t end there. The story goes on to tell how the refugees’ hard work paid off and they found a new community in Clarkston, they found new friends, new jobs and new ways to be happy. Most of the time that involved Luma and the Fugees. Warren St. John again uses extreme detail to describe just how happy the Fugees became after joining the team once again highlighting just how much better things had become. They had a family and had basic social needs satiated because of that team.
I began volunteering three months ago, but my time there has been memorable and captivating. I love what I do because I love to help those in need, especially those who are unable to care for themselves. Every time I walk through the ER, I feel as though I make a difference in these people’s lives. It gives me a sense of community and purpose, even if my purpose is to provide hot coffee, blankets, and comforting words to our patients. But what I learned is that a small cup of coffee and a smile is a gesture that goes a long
I currently participate with my church in Rialto making meals for the homeless and are distribute every Sunday morning. We usually provide meals for about 250 homeless who are aware of our program and expect a meal every week. I also have free piano lessons at my church for children who attend the church and for those who do not. They do not need to be Christians in order to participate, because it is a way to keep children from trouble. After, I graduate I want to provide health care to areas of low resources for people who cannot afford expensive health care benefits.
From club member to president of UNICEF, I always register UNICEF for the "Feeding the Homeless" event. It is one of my favorite events since I get to see a smile light up on the homeless people as we all come together and treat them a Thanksgiving meal. I remember being assigned to the sleeping bag station, where I handed out sleeping bags to homeless people. The volunteers and I later ran into the problem of not being able to give all the homeless people a sleeping bag. The worst part was hearing a little girl asked her mom, “what happened to all the sleeping bags?” Up to this day, the little girl still has a huge impact on my involvement with the school and UNICEF.
In Scratch beginnings, Adam Shepard tells the story from a homeless persons point of view to show appreciativeness. Shepard says “More than anything else over the course of my project, I grew to appreciate, even more than before , that we live in the greatest country in the world.” (213). By becoming homeless and leaving everything he had makes him a lot more encountered in working hard for what he wanted and where he wanted to get in life. For example, He worked a low paying job at the car wash while trying to find a better job, and he doesn’t spend money on food in order to save money for his apartment. He wanted to see how successful he could be by trying to make things happen on his own.
To volunteer, I had to communicate through email. I had to email the head of administration, Terri Lightle, at the Good Shepherd Alliance. Terri was very welcoming when she responded to my email, and informed me of all the volunteer opportunities at the Good Shepherd Alliance, which included volunteering at their thrift store, event planning, and various other events already planned by other caring volunteers. With all of these options, I decided that I would help in the thrift store. This was an easy way to get involved, and use some of my already developed skills.
