We cleaned the Washington sailing marina which was really fun and exciting. We got to clean the place where we do our sport as well as bind as a team. I am looking forward to doing it again.
We completed a CPR training course with GW EMERG. We are all now trained and prepared to help others if they are in trouble and need CPR or first aid.
I can now use my CPR skills if an emergency situation requires, so I can do my part in keeping the community safe.
I got the opportunity to work with EmerG GW to learn how to respond and perform CPR in an emergency situation.
I really enjoyed it. It was fun to be with my team but also to volunteer my time for something I am interested in.
It was great to learn how to perform CPR with my teammates so that I would feel confident to help in an emergency. Being on the water and sailing can sometimes lead to a dangerous situation so knowing the steps to take in an emergency is super important.
It is a very important tool to have in order to help people in need.
I was happy to know I can help keep the community safe by knowing cpr
It was a well informed and very helpful certification section.
It was enlightening
Working at some so close to Thanksgiving was a humbling experience because it is a holiday that can be very expensive and is so focused around a meal. Growing up I never had to worry that we couldn't afford to get a thanksgiving dinner and being able to give someone a meal around thanksgiving that they may not otherwise be able to afford brought me a lot of joy. It is always so much fun to work at SOME and get to see and connect with volunteers and guests alike and I look forward to going back soon.
The Arlington Free Clinic (AFC) provides quality health care to uninsured Arlingtonians. I have been volunteering here for three years now contributing to different tasks where I am needed. As a Pharmacy Technician Assistant, I work with the pharmacists to ensure the patients are receiving their medication in a timely manner. I began working at the AFC because of my interest in health care accessibility.
I got to work different jobs this time and it was cool to experience all of the different roles that make the service work, we were understaffed so it was a lot of running around but it was still a lot of fun.
