Do Something Positive: Update



OK, so as I posted the other day, I was going to embark on my first community project in quite a while (I'm so ashamed...) and my place of choice was Project Open Hand in Midtown.

It was a WONDERFUL experience. The people were great, the atmosphere was one of extreme professionalism. We worked H-A-R-D putting together over 2,000 meals to feed the homless, elderly and poor citizens of Atlanta.

We dished out a main course, veggies, a roll, and 2 separate deserts. I got to find out how the packages are sealed and then we bagged it all up. It took several hours but we had good music, good people and good intentions so the time flew by.

It was a very rewarding day and I signed up to participate twice a month, every other week. I'm going to find another organization to help on the alternative weeks. Wish me luck!

  1. Hey good on you. I'll look forward to seeing what you do the alternate weeks.
    You're right - we should all do more community work.

  2. Hey, Jumpstart (where I work...well worked) volunteered with them a lot this past semester. We were even featured on some news broadcasting, don't remember which one. It is a very good program to volunteer for, everyone is so nice.

  3. Yes it is. I didn’t know about them until I got here to GA. I am still looking to see if I can get into a Habitat for Humanity program. I’ve always wanted to help build someone’s home.
