YEAH, WE DID IT - GIVINGING BACK TEAM
(NOTE: there are no pictures of any guests due to shelter rules. Confidentiality agreements restrict picture taking to only of our group of volunteers and shelter workers)
We did it finally event it didnt go very well. We actually set the kitchen on fire and the fire department had to come and everybody had to get out in cold weather for 1 hour but after all, we were succeed. We had prepared, cooked and served free meal for 100 homeless people. It was great experience. Thanks for answering my call my friends, my neighbors. There were 10 of us and many donations in clothes. I didnt even know some of the people in my group before yesterday or just talked on phone but they were with me and we made it a big day yesterday. It was really really really fun and meaningful, not just for those homeless family but also for us. Our team name GIVINGING BACK but i think we gained more then gave yesterday. We gained a lot yesterday. We gained our relationship. We gained our confident. We gained our happiness and we gained more love. I may do it next month and it would be very nice if more people could help or pass down the information about this. Here are those picture from yesterday event. We couldnt take any pix with homeless people in it because it would make them upset and feel self-pity. We also were too busy so we forgot to take picture of donation things that we had collected.
