This project raises awareness to the amount of homeless people in our community. As Key Club was preparing for the sleepout, each member of the club was raising money to donate to the PADS shelter. Both years I participated in the homeless sleepout, Streator and Woodland
Scattered thoughts, last minute ideas, zero organizational skills, and no set schedule summed up my lifestyle as a vacation bible school director. So the idea of stepping out of my comfort zone seemed appropriate for helping me and my family to grow in faith. I had been the vacation bible school director at our church for 5 years, and with the excellent team of leaders that I had, it was not a difficult task to host a week long vacation bible school for about 100 kids. Each leader was assigned a designated age group to prepare lessons, decorate class rooms, and assist with any other tasks that needed to be completed. “Many hands make light work” my preacher would say, and this statement held true year after year, as me and my team hosted multiple successful vacation bible schools for our church.
Things used to be different. I used to go to school, laugh uncontrollably at lunch with all of my goofy friends and hoped that I would have time to spend with my boyfriend during the weekend. I used a name that my mom and dad gave me. The only thing I had to worry about was getting good grades… but now I worry for my family.
Over three million dollars worth of donations came in from the United States and an additional eighteen foreign countries (“Wave of Destruction”). People all around the world were helping to get clothing, food and any other supplies that was needed. The American Red Cross went and set up shelters for anyone whose house was destroyed in the flood. Helping Johnstown was the Red Cross’s first major disaster they worked with. It had attracted dozens of reporters, along with aid groups to help.

In the neighborhood where I was raised, socializing with homeless individuals became a daily occurrence. My parents could not afford for us to live anywhere else, so we lived in Starrett City, where the government subsidized our apartment. Consequently, the experiences of my youth enabled me to be more sympathetic and compassionate for a community that I grew up with. When learning about the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, I was excited to participate in a setting that provided more than just nourishment, but also an opportunity for the underserved to engage in conversation, create friendships, and obtain social amenities. I too made meaningful relationships, both with other volunteers and with guests.
As a teacher missing one day of school was even worse. I didn’t know if my students would get to everything they had to do. I didn’t know if I had everything set out so that my lesson plans were easy to follow. I was thankful that my Mentor Teacher was quick to get back to me and let me know what
I have had the unforgettable opportunity to personally raise $1,400 for kids to go to summer camp, whose families could not afford it otherwise. I have worked at food drives, homeless shelters, and kid’s programs in my town, in hopes to make someone’s day a little bit better and ultimately make my community stronger. These experiences shaped who I am today. While I cherish the experience I had making a difference in my own town, I am ready to grow and leave a positive impact somewhere else in the country.

My Service Learning Project had been planned accordingly thanks to my family, I had volunteered with my family at the homeless shelter to serve food and give necessities to the homeless before Christmas time. My personal involvement with the homeless was absolutely attending their priorities such as toiletry, food, assistance, etc. as well as providing a warm hand to be open minded with. I previously had friends who relied on the homeless shelter, and I had credible knowledge on what the homeless were asking for in terms of help. I would engage in involvement or communication with some of the homeless to not only provide their necessities, but positive social interaction.
Even though I have never been to an extremely poor place, I have seen the devastating sights of people living in poverty. The reality that we often forget about is anywhere and everywhere in this world. I myself have participated in helping ones in need of other countries. A few years ago, my youth group

In the fourth grade at what was then Millville, Harriet encountered a teacher who she describes as “mean spirited.” During this same year, Harriet’s mother was diagnosed with cancer. As a fourth grader, Harriet would spend her lunch breaks running the two-mile trek from Millville to her home so that she could care for her Mother while her Father worked. “If I wasn’t on the front steps of the school and in line with my class by the time lunch ended, she would consider me late,” Harriet said, grinning at the childhood memory, “most of the time the other kids would hold the line for me trying 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.
A simple thank you changed my perspective on life. While I was distributing food at my local homeless shelter one lady, in particular, caught my attention. She had tears in her eyes as I served her lasagna. Seeing how desperate people were in need of assistance snapped me out of my selfish bubble and fueled my desire to help my community. I initially embarked on my volunteer journey to begin building hours for my community service requirements, but I genuinely became invested in helping my community.
