Westside Shelter

For the past two semester I have been volunteering at an off campus homeless shelter. Every Saturday myself and 3-4 other volunteers spend the morning working with the clients. Typically we are there to work on resumes, job searches and bring in positive energy.

Today we decided to plant a garden! This is just the beginning of a project to bring in a catering company to use the vegetables we are going to grow as well as have a healthy diet for the shelter.

Super sana

( I was clearly working hard)


I was a great way to spend a Saturday morning!


I enjoyed some lovely eats:


Fresh fruits and a Tomato and Mozzarella Panini


Vegetable Biryani

I ended the day with a 5 mile bike ride and 2.5 hours of roller skating!

QUESTION: What projects do you work on in your local community?

    Maya and I have volunteered at a local church packing up supplies for the homeless. In addition, I love raising money for Developments in Literacy. It isn’t a local cause but a great cause nonetheless!
