I will also provide details and examples of teamwork, communication and networking experiences gained while at the event. A brief overview of the Montgomery County Food bank will also be provided with information on the assignment task, measurable success and interaction with fellow students and organization directors.
Good morning Hollie, It was a pleasure meeting you at Women Who Brunch this weekend.

We have prior experience volunteering for campaigns and would be willing to do anything to
I want to be a volunteer with Homeless Outreach because I enjoyed the Homeless Outreach community service when I was at Reality Camp. At Reality Camp, I participated in an "Urban Plunge" walk. Afterwards, I listened to homeless people speak about their circumstances. Then in the morning, we had breakfast with the homeless people. I found all three of these experiences to be very eye-opening and rewarding.

Along with setting an example for my relatives, I’m very focused on what I do with my spare time. When I’m home for the summer, I volunteer at my local library. The reason why I volunteer there is the library low staffed, so I go there to help out; while I’m present, I reorganize books, CDs,
Throughout high school, I have involved myself with various activities, both curricular and extracurricular. As a member of National Honor Society (NHS), I participate in numerous public service events. Some of which include volunteering at Springdale’s annual Strawberry Festival, Senior Citizen Brunch and Street Fair amongst a variety of school functions such as Education Celebration and our recent Job Fair. Through NHS, I also tutor other students in the High School as well as students of any age in the district at the Springdale Public Library. Outside from NHS, I have volunteered at a variety of places.
In my neighborhood, Denver Westwood, there is a scarcity of super markets. I have started volunteering for a program, call Re:Vision. Re:Vision helps families in the community, build urban garden in their homes. This helps increase hyper-local economy because many of the vegetables and fruits grown in the community gardens are sold at the “Mercadito”. I am very passionate about this, which is why I have decided to volunteer at the Mercadito every Saturday afternoon.
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.
Therefore, my ambition motivated me to join Keep Brownsville Beautiful on the effort to improve the community’s environment. I was part of the recycling events in which took place during many high school football games to collect empty plastic bottles to recycle them to reduce greenhouse effect. My other participations in community service events are with the National Honor Society. As the Parliamentarian for the Lopez Early College High School National Honor Society, I contributed in the participation of the organization to be present at the Mile of Hope to bring awareness for breast cancer. In addition, we organized a canned- food drive to be donated for the school’s janitors and those in need during the Thanksgiving break, we collected toys for “Toys For Tots”, wrote Christmas Cards for Veterans and volunteered at Spanish Meadows, a nursing home, to share the Christmas Spirit with the elders.
My Cultural Hat The cultural hat that represents me and that is deeply significant to me would be a mother to my four children. Some of the artifacts from my past as being a mother would be sleepless nights, baby bottles and lots of diapers. As my children have grown older and more independent. Some of the artifacts in the present would be their homework, sporting events. In the future some of the artifacts that I have to look forward to would be buying them their fist car, high school graduations and paying college tuition.
