We can find many opportunities to volunteer right here in the communities of Sioux County. In Hawarden, there is a Community Food Pantry that is held in a church once or twice a month that could use volunteers. This stops the injustice of our neighbors going without food. There is also a Community Supper held every month by another church in town. While this might not look like a justice seeking opportunity at first glance, it can be a big factor in bringing love and friendship into someone’s life.
I volunteered for the service project at High Plains Food Bank. High Plains Food Bank was founded in 1982 by a group of concerned citizens who conducted a survey to see if food banks were needed in the area. High Plains Food Bank is a nonprofit organization, and its mission is to attenuate hunger in the Texas Panhandle by collecting, storing, and distributing groceries to the hungry people in the Texas Panhandle. The agency helps many families every year and is continuing to help more families. The food bank is located at 815 Ross St, Amarillo, TX.

“It 's emotional,” spoke Mr. Koehn, a socials teacher. “He was so young. It is hard to even imagine myself in good physical condition even attempting what Terry did while suffering through cancer. It really gets to people, the message is powerful. When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.” All donations gathered from the weeks leading up to the Terry Fox run by volunteers were directly given to the Terry Fox foundation, where 84 cents of every dollar goes toward funding cancer research.
At the time, individual back-to-school events were providing supplies for students every year but the lack of resources and planning were creating difficulties for the organizers. Noticing this fact, a catholic charity worker came up with the idea to pull together all the resources each individual organizers had and buy supplies in bulk to increase efficiency. With the belief that education is the key solution to ending the poverty cycle, the organizers eventually opened their first event to the public in 2005. The event is privately funded by sponsorship, grants from foundations and private donations. It is also entirely run by volunteers and has served 100,000 students since the first event.
Kerr and Meghan Hoyer delves into the problem of students across America being absent from schools. This issue is explored in this article by showing the reader percentages of chronic absences in the United States. This issue was so bad in 2013-2014 that former president Barack Obama tried to help fix the issue by starting a program that works in 30 communities that tries to identify mentors that can work with students that are habitually absent from school. This program also as part of the effort donated “state” backpacks for students. This part of the program donated 30,000 bags to students that were part of the program.
Before 10th grade, I had an insufficiently rigorous course load to yield a competitive GPA. After taking the most rigorous classes for a year and boosting my GPA, I have decided to help my classmates tackle the competition at my school by helping them organize their schedules and classes for future academic years. I have reached out to these classmates through class projects and tutoring sessions. So far, I have helped about five teenagers become competitive. I have also frequently volunteered at a local food pantry.
This is the attitude I grew up. My father died a while ago but the values he instilled me are still with me. As today, I help my community in every way I can contribute. For instance, I volunteer a local food shelf called Emergency Community Help Organization (ECHO), which provides emergency food assistance to people in Blue Earth County and North Mankato. I go to the ECHO foods when I have a free time to hand food to the needy people in my community.
The overview of the typical activities I participated in at the Bakersfield Homeless Center consisted of providing 3 nutritional meals a day for the people and families at the center. We also created a variety of sack lunches for those contracted to work outside of the center. In addition, I helped in the process of handling the fresh food donations that were collected each day, planned and prepared meals, washed dishes and sanitized the kitchen. Furthermore, I participated in activities that were beneficial to my educational and career goals, which involved interacting with the community. For example, I managed to create bonds with the people at the center and gained their trust during the process.
Working all across the country, they rescue strays off the street, making sure they’re healthy, and helping them get better homes. In order to achieve this goal they hold many fundraisers and get a lot of donations. They only ask for $0.63 a day from donors so they can continue to help these abused
The organization helps feed over 100,000 people at the food bank during the holiday season. With all the donations from BABH, the West Alabama Food Bank is sustained for four to five months (Charland). Students and faculty have the ability to help out the organization by donating cans for the drive. Red bins will be set out all over campus, in the Ferg, and in the lecture halls, to drop off canned goods. “Anything you can put in your pantry,” Charland said cheerfully when I asked what type of donations BABH was looking for.
Many fortunate children in this world wonder why they have to go to school, and whine because they want to stay home and play. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education, but also so they may go to work and feed their families. That is why Year-Round would be a great option for everybody to use in the US. The reason that Year-Round Schooling would be great is because, you may have food, and a place to sleep and wake up, but what about the children that don’t have what you have, they rely on their next meal coming from the school cafeteria. To understand this issue better we need to look at some statistics.
The Las Cruces community has various food pantries and shelters to help those struggling with food insecurity. Two in particular that serve not only children, but all who are food insecure is Casa de Peregrinos and the Farmers Market at Mesa Middle School. Casa de Peregrinos is a food pantry that serves not only Las Cruces, but much of the Dona Anna community. Their main pantry is in Las Cruces and is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays both in the mornings and afternoons. People can come and receive groceries and in some cases referrals to other agencies.
For example, “...the group has rescued 100,000 pounds of food and delivered it to homeless shelters and food kitchens,”(Beasley 1).The organization, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, has saved a lot of food and fed a lot of hungry people. In the Man Collects Food Restaurants Would Throw Away, Gives It to the Homeless, the author explains,“The team is able to collect anywhere between five and 120 pounds of food a day, and they
