Volunteering for Veterans


Spencer Jones

It was a really nice time celebrating the holidays and helping out at the home. It always seems like this time of years gets people in a good mood from the beginning.

This time around, I was able to help set up a game of Bingo with some of the dependent residents.

I was able to go around to meet several residents and see if they needed tech support, though, funny enough, none of them actually needed help and their names just hadn't been crossed off of the list. Fortunately, I was able to sit down and talk with some of them and got to hear some pretty cool stories from a GW alumni! Later, I was able to help get an outing organized to go to a restaurant for some veterans.

It was really awesome to just hang out with the veterans and help them with things like tech support for things that we younger folk are more adept with, but they are unfamiliar with. It was also a great time to talk with them about their banter and sense of humor which I can really appreciate.
