Today was very busy. We had many guests who needed clothing, but we weren't able to fulfill everyone's orders. I was the only volunteer so it was hard to go back and forth between the clothing closet and the dining room. Although we helped a lot of people, we weren't able to help everyone.
This was my first time serving in the kitchen and I really enjoyed it. Seeing how thankful they were for the plate of food taught me to be thankful for everything big or small.
I will: compile a list of schools where the Jan. training can take place; attend Dec. PD @ GW; determine specific training materials for the Admin Aide session of the training; schedule site visits for Dec.; write the Jan. newsletter.
I volunteered at the Reston community market with Capital Area Food Bank this morning and it was the best volunteer experience I've had! The market was so efficiently run, the leaders were clear and inspiring, and there was such an evident positive sense of community amongst the volunteers and market attendees.
Always happy to volunteer!!
