Hello fellow bloggers! Happy Summer! Less than one month till college. Wahooo. Speaking of college I recently went on a 4 day service retreat for freshman at my college. It was really awesome. One day each small group visited three service sites around the city. My group went to a local church, something similar to a YMCA, and catholic social services which works with families who have visitation hours and watch over them during their weekly meetings. It was really nice when we all got back together to share where everyone had visited. Then the next day we broke into groups and actually volunteered at some of these sites. I went to a soup kitchen. We prepared the meal (Ive never chopped so many peppers!) Then we got the chance to serve lunch to those in need. The man in charge of the soup kitchen told us that anyone is allowed to recieve food from them, there are no rules of how needy one has to be. It was a really great place and a wonderful experience!
I can't wait to go to college and have plenty of free time to volunteer all over the city!
