It was clear how much the elementary school I participated it needed our help. It felt rewarding to give back to the school in a way that you wouldn't have first expected to be impactful. I helped organize the teachers storage closet. Most times, it is hard for teachers to find the supplies that they need. By doing the service that I did, they will be able to teach our youth much more efficiently.
This was probably one of the most rewarding services that I have ever done. We got to go door to door at a hospital/retirement home center to spread holiday love and cheer. Many people do not have family that come to see them, so having a visitor was genuinely special to them. I learned so many stories and life lessons from the people that I met
I got to meet so many incoming freshmen and their families as well. This service opportunity allowed me to speak about my experience at GW and learn about people from very different parts of the country, and world for that matter. Had we not been there to support these families moving their kids in, this process would've been extremely difficult for them. I am proud that I was able to be a person of support for all of the families that I helped that day.
