Talk about early morning service! I really enjoyed volunteering at the Go Lucy Go annual 5k-10k. I had always heard about this event, but I never knew the story behind it. Lucy was diagnosed with brain cancer at a young age and they did not know how long she would live, but she survived it! Now, they raise money every year at this run. It is such an impacting story and I was glad to be a part of this event to give back. I helped direct traffic, help any of the runners and help clean up.
For this service hour, I went to the store to look for items for children such as crayons, coloring books, pencils, pens, etc. There were plenty of items to choose from. I picked out ten items for these children. I then dropped them off at the UC to be donated to the Child Advocacy Center. Even though I did not get to do hands on work, I still enjoyed getting to get items that may brighten a child's day!
I was able to go around the city of Memphis to pick up cleaning supplies. I enjoyed getting to do this with my friends. In the middle of a pandemic, there is a huge need for cleaning supplies everywhere, including the workforce. I dropped off these donations after I got them all. I love helping those in need.
