Also last Saturday was service day as someone posted about earlier! I went to an elementary school and the building they are in was a junior high but it was closed for a year and the elementary school just opened. They have been slowly but surely making a ton of improvements. It was too cold on Saturday to paint since originally we were going to paint hopscotch patterns outside. Instead we created a template so when it does warm up a bit they have a good idea of where to paint. The hopscotch patterns were from the United States, Nigeria, and Great Britain. I worked on the one from Great Britain with Kerry who lives with me. Together we made this massive template:
I was very proud of us! After that we moved on to cleaning out a storage room and then we joined the others outside and moved lots of dirt in preparation for re-mulching and planting flowers in the spring. We even had help from some little boys that went to the school and saw us working! If volunteering is something you’re interested in TU makes it so easy to log some hours! Plus it is a great feeling knowing you are with 400 of your other classmates all doing some good and giving back to the community!
