Went to Patricia Handy Place for Women and helped serve dinner again. I have really built a relationship with a lot of the women and the volunteers there. It kind of feels like a family and I use the time I volunteer there to take a pause in my life.
I volunteered with the N Street Village serving dinner at the Patricia Handy Place for Women, which is a short term emergency housing facility for single women experiencing homelessness. Being able to have real conversations with these women made it a very rewarding experience!
Helped to make candy trains to be sold around campus to raise money for Franklin Square Park.
I really enjoyed my experience with the women homeless holster. I worked on the third floor with 54 women where we helped serve all of them chicken quesadillas and beans for dinner. One thing that really stuck out to me was a deaf person came in and when she found out I knew sign language she got so excited because no one in the homeless shelter knows sign language or is deaf. I had really good time helping the community and would really love to go back again
I served dinner at the Patricia Handy Place for women. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to help those less fortunate than myself. The women were extremely appreciative of my help and were very eager to speak with me regarding political issues, given my interest in political science and criminal justice. I would encourage anyone to volunteer with this organization.
