On our second day of service our group headed down to an organization called A Wider Circle, where items are donated and taken by people who need them.
When we first got there, we were welcomed by the lead volunteer, who talked to us about the organization and showed us around.
While we were there, we cleaned and placed mirrors, pieces of art, picture frames, pillows, and rugs. It felt good whenever someone picked out what we had cleaned and displayed.
After lunch, we helped organize clothing. We took away clothes that seemed stained, ripped, or damaged, and organized clothes that were in good condition on the racks.
After our day at A Wider Circle, we headed back to the church, where we helped prepare dinner for the homeless. Once the food was all prepared, we sat down and interacted with the guests. It was nice to talk to them and make connections.
Today’s service was truly memorable and fulfilling.
