Leveraged Staycation – Day 2

Today was just as interesting, rewarding and varied as yesterday. The first task of the day was making 75 sandwiches to be delivered on the street tomorrow night. After this I assisted with checking people in for a delicious, free lunch. The rest of the afternoon was spent back in the kitchen, mostly helping wash dishes. I had a blast getting to know the kitchen staff and other volunteers, a cheerful, colorful group. As we checked people in for lunch it was bittersweet, the homeless were so hot, tired and worn down, some were testy but more were kind and grateful. My problems seem quite small and easily dealt with. Tomorrow morning I’ll be helping out with the children, I can’t wait!
