I have been coming to Friendship Circle events since I was a freshman, mostly to things like holiday parties and the like. It wasn’t until my junior year that I began the “Friends at Home” program. That year, I began to devote an hour and a half on most Sundays to go see my friend Josh. Coming over on Sundays was amazing for me. I got to put down my homework and leave the house to play video games and board games. It was really fun playing Wii Sports and I got to learn how to play new board games such as Blockus and Banagrams. When it was warm out, we would play Frisbee or jump on the neighbors’ trampoline. I love coming to see Josh every week, and I’m always in a great mood when I leave his house. The “Friends at Home” program was certainly my favorite part of Friendship Circle, and I am so happy that I was able to take part in it the last two years.

I volunteer at the Friendship Circle and I have so much fun with it. It doesn't only benefit the families with special needs, it also benefits the volunteers. I have learned so much from the hours I have given and have grown in a spiritual way as well.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how it teaches me to appreciate what i have and appreciate others for who they really are.
