It was a lot of fun, especially knowing we helped to feed around 280 people in the future.
The on-site manager almost prevented us from volunteering, saying that we had not signed up properly (of course, we did or else we would not be receiving these reminder and follow-up e-mails). A few of our volunteers were also turned away for clothing policy (one needed to cover her shoulders I think, and the other was not wearing close-toed shoes), so perhaps these could be included under "Description" or "Requirements" on the GivePulse registration page. Otherwise, the event proceeded well and without incident.
I had a wonderful time helping out! Hope to make it a more regular thing.
Some members of my group were relocated to another volunteer event, due to miss understandings/issues on the place. Nonetheless we enjoyed volunteering at CARITAS.
