When Volunteering at Saint Marys soup Kitchen, I was given the opportunity to serve the poor and homeless in the down town Memphis area, this past Friday morning. I helped make sandwiches, bag popcorn, and organize bins. I also helped prepare the soup, and hand the soup, and sandwiches out to the homeless that morning. It was a very giving and rewarding experience because being able to help those less fortunate means a lot to me because just little acts of kindness and gestures like what I did that day, can go a long way for people. It was nice being a smiling face to those in need and letting them know I care for them and I want to help in any way I can.
It was giving to make goody gift bags for the staff at Lebonheur because I was able to show in a small way that the staff is greatly appreciated for all that they do there. I know that it will brighten their day and make them know that they are appreciate and loved for things that may go unnoticed to the naked eye!
It was very giving to be able to serve our community hands on and help distribute food boxes to the less fortunate. It was very important to me to be able to interact with the less fortunate hands on and be able to let them know that they are loved and cared for just like everyone else. I hope to continue working with catholic charities in the future as well.
Giving donations to the hope house was very impactful and meaningful to me because I was able to give back to my community. Seeing what items was needed for the hope house also made me feel greatful for all that I have and makes me want to give more to those in need.
It was very giving to give back to my UofM community. Being able to help move students in especially those who did not have a lot of family help like others did, was rewarding to me. It felt good knowing that I was helping and making a difference in someones experience when moving into a dorm on campus because the littlest things can have the biggest impacts on people. Its not how much we give but how much love we put into giving!
I raised 100 dollars for tigers for saint Jude. i was rewarding to give back to the children at Saint Jude Hospital in hopes to help researchers get closer to a cure and so the hospital can provide for the children there!
Made Easter Bunny Baskets for the Children at Lebonheur! It was very rewarding making baskets for these children and knowing that these were going to kids that were less fortunate than me. It also made me appreciate of the life I was given and also made me want to give back to my community and know that I was making a difference in some children's lives.
Volunteering at Saint Mary's soup kitchen has become more of a sensier thing to me the more I come to serve the poor and homeless. This time around, I came to help a Tuesday Morning before I had class and i truly impacted me because it made me feel grateful that I was able to serve those less fortunate than me and have an impact on their lives that day. It also makes me more self aware and thankful for all that I have and the opportunities God gives me each and every day in my own life and makes me appreciate the things and life I have more because I can often catch myself taking the things I have for granted. Being able to give back to those in my Memphis community is important to me and is something I want to continue doing here at Saint Mary's soup kitchen.
Saint Mary's Soup kitchen was in need of sandwiches to give to the homeless and were running low on supplies. I made them 100 boloney sandwiches and brought it to the soup kitchen Tuesday Morning. I am used to handing the food out to the homeless when I volunteer there, but it was nice to actually sit down and make the sandwiches for them. It was a rewarding experience to be able to think about how the sandwiches would be given to those less fortunate, and made me realize how grateful i am to have food everyday.
While volunteering at Saint Mary's soup kitchen over spring break, it was a very rewarding experience to be able to serve the less fortunate and give back to my Memphis community. I began my day by going upstairs and helping one of the workers sort through the donation of clothes and put them into the category that they divide the clothe in, for the days that they give to the homeless. Then i went down stairs and spent the remainder of my time serving the pour food. Seeing how thankful people were to have a friendly face given them something to eat is so touching to my heart and reminds me how are all called to help those less fortunate then us and it means a lot to me to be able to give back to my community especially those who have less than me.
