Building Compassion is a great opportunity to change the lives of others in the community who have had difficult times. I have volunteered with them on two projects thus far and have learned more constructions skills than I have ever expected along with an increased desire to serve others. While building a tiny house, despite having moments of fatigue I was constantly encouraged to proceed to help out because I wanted to be able to see my efforts into fruition. The developers of the organization, Scot and Anita Lansing, genuinely pour out their heart in every project and are dedicated to see renovations and construction projects completed. Even in light of minimal resources at times and long hours of work, they strive to do what they can to assist others. I would recommend others volunteer with this organizations because your labor really is worth it.
Feed My People was new experience for me. With the crowd of people that arrived they did their best to provide breakfast to all that arrived. I was amazed to hear that along with food they also provided free haircuts. Such a small thing as haircuts I often take for granted, but I'm glad to see that Feed My People tries to meet this type of need. Although my responsibility was filling cups with drinks, I was appreciative of the overall work I was involved in.
Home Cooked Fridays is a worthwhile event I was grateful to be a part of. Being able to serve cooked meals to those in my community was a fun way to get to know others, make new friends, and contribute to an important cause.
