    Saturday Cleaning and Stocking

    I truly enjoyed my experience working at The Store last weekend as it was a chance to learn more about their services during my second trip to volunteer there. It was an impactful experience as I was able to learn about those that are able to benefit from The Store's services. As GW is seen as a privileged university, I am happy to see the work that is put in to help those students in need. I am always blessed when I get the chance to work with the volunteers of The Store because they truly are happy to be making an impact in the community.

    I got the chance to work with DC Central Kitchen once again this morning. It was a different experience than I have had before because I was able to work the morning shift today rather than the night shift. It was an interesting change as I was working with different supervisors, and therefore was able to hear different opinions on what the impact of DC Central Kitchen means to the workers there. It was nice to once again know that this food is going to underprivileged people all over DC, which was nice to have as a motivation to get the job done. It was an amazing experience getting to volunteer at DC Central Kitchen over this summer, and I am looking forward to continuing my work here in the rest of my time in DC.

    I got the chance to work with DC Central Kitchen again tonight. I spent my volunteering time making beef stew after chopping the fat off the meat and chopping potatoes. It was nice to once again know that this food is going to underprivileged people all over DC, which was nice to have as a motivation to get the job done. It was an amazing experience getting to volunteer at DC Central Kitchen as all the supervisors were very kind and welcoming. I am glad that I got to do more hours at this fantastic organization, and I am looking forward to doing more service hours here in the future.

    I got the chance to work with DC Central Kitchen last night. I spent my volunteering time removing fresh strawberry pound cake from pans after being baked without nonstick spray. Even though this was a challenging task making sure the cakes were not ruined when they were being removed, it was nice knowing that this food is going to underprivileged people all over DC, which was nice to have as a motivation to get the job done. Then, we had to package all the pound cakes and store them in bins to be delivered. It was an amazing experience getting to volunteer at DC Central Kitchen as all the supervisors were very kind and welcoming. I am looking forward to doing more service hours here in the future.

    The Store

    I really enjoyed my experience working at The Store. It was an impactful experience because I was able to learn that GW provides groceries to students that cannot afford to pay for them. Even though GW has a stereotype for being a rich university, but it is good to see the school giving back to the community. It was nice working with the volunteers of The Store because they truly are happy to be making an impact in the community.
