Helping children for a better tomorrow
Volunteer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 11, 2015
I attend three different locations; Metro, East County and South County. I am usually placed with the younger crowd (ages 2-8). We begin by giving them pizza and juice. Afterwards we have play time in the playground. We also do a craft with the children. At the end, a movie is played and snacks are given so they can enjoy the rest of the night. Throughout the time there is a lot of interaction with these children. Some have disabilities and are placed with more one-on-one time than others. The staff and other volunteer people are amazing. I enjoy every minute I spend with these kids because of the bond I built with them. The hardest part would be the day I stop volunteering because of schedule reasons, because I have enjoyed getting to each of them.
