I helped to organize and box pastries and bread products. This boxed products will then go off to feed thousands of people throughout Central Texas. Even though at the end I was very exhausted it was still a fun experience!
Today I volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas by sorting through donated dry food items. My responsibilities included checking for expiration dates and dents on boxes, canned goods, and other miscellaneous items. I enjoyed volunteering at this event because seeing all the donated items itemizes the impact that volunteering at this makes.
I enjoyed it a lot. This was my second time and I am getting ahold of things a lot more.
It is the best feeling knowing you are helping out so many families in the community. I would 100% volunteer here again.
The three hours went by in a flash because I was lucky enough to be paired with a really funny guy, all we really had to do was pass out boxes of food for other volunteers to sort but we talked about his past and all the cities he has lived in and all the jobs he has worked at, super interesting guy which just shows another reason to volunteer. It's not only the work you do but the people you meet.
I took the sorted food donations and placed them into categorized boxes weighing about 30 pounds each, the boxes I then wrapped stacks of the boxes and put them into the warehouse to be made ready to be distributed into the community.
I enjoyed working as a unit with other people from the Austin community.
Felt great to know that I could help out my community in this holiday season by sorting donations.
Great experience and it felt really good to contribute a little of my time to help out.
Helped , sort frozen food form food bank, its a great environment and its for a noble cause.
This week was sorting frozen foods. Even though I was sick, I still manage to handle the chilliness of the food I was insepcting
