107 Volunteer work

I spent the morning stuffing toiletries, sunscreen and water bottles in backpacks to hand out to homeless men and women who came to an outreach event at our church.
It was extremely well organized.

A free lunch was prepared for "guests" and volunteers

They had service providers fixing bicycles, cutting hair, foot baths, plus various service organizations to help people get housing and benefits they need to survive.

I am so thankful I had the time to give and help.

Did your girls help? I'm struggling because I am sooooo volunteer focused and I think it's a very important part of being an active member in our community. I'm not sure when to introduce the idea to my little girl. And, I'm afraid to "push" the groups I choose to support onto her. . .
