I always have a good time volunteering here because of the friendly staff! They even invited me to keep volunteering here even if the shift isn't offered on Volunteer Odyssey, so I will continue doing that. I always enjoy interacting more with my community. Volunteering at Lucy J's Bakery helps with my social skills too. I am able to talk and interact with people more. The day I volunteered was also fun because it was Mardi Gras, and the Lucy J bakery was making a bunch of Mardi Gras king cakes. I didn't even know what king cakes were! They sold a lot of them that day, and I also learned that Crosstown Concourse was doing something for Mardi Gras too. Volunteering on Feb. 25 helped me realize that there are a lot of opportunities in Memphis. There are a lot of activities that I don't even know about yet, and I'm really excited to become more involved in my community.
This was a really nice event! I was able to talk to some of the children that were participating in the fashion show, and they were so sweet and cute. I was able to sit in the crowd, so I was cheering for them as loud as I could whenever they walked on stage. I love that events like these exist, and I hope I'm able to help with more events like this!
