Cleaning up trash is always a really good way of giving back to the community I grew up in. We have always had a trash issue and it is great to see the area looking so clean.
For the 2.5 hours that I was there, I was responsible for handing out the drinks.
I worked on my assigned photo project. The project involves transferring their photos from an older album to a newer one. I worked remotely from my dorm room.
Due to the inclement weather, a lot of the volunteers seemed to cancel last minute, giving me the opportunity to sign up. Even with the weather, the kitchen was full of both volunteers and guests, fortunately. With 2 shifts under my belt, I am far more comfortable doing work behind the counter. However, I messed up big time today because I misheard instructions. Two of the options were supposed to be available at the same time, but I was so intent on thinking only one of them was available per person. Not only did I rip the guests off of some food, but I put my fellow volunteer in an awkward situation, as she was the actual person serving the food. "If you are unsure of anything, ask" these words of Chef Cheryl will be engrained in my head from now on.
I was tutoring a 1st grader with math and reading as well as taking care of children in Pre-K. I am happy to volunteer at the Latino Student Fund as I received similar services as a child back in El Paso, Texas and I want to continue creating an impact in education among the Latino community.
For the 2.5 hours, I was tasked with pouring and serving drinks to those that came up to the table and asked for them. I interacted with the visitors and made sure to be of help to the chefs in the kitchen. We ended by sweeping and mopping up the floor and tables.
