Review for Little Helping Hands, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My kids, ages 10 and 6, and I are already looking forward to our next Little Helping Hands activity! We recently spent an hour at Caritas preparing macaroni & cheese and cutting fruit to be served at lunch the following day. From the minute we arrived, we felt as though we were doing something worthwhile and meaningful. The LHH coordinator explained the mission of Caritas in ways that the kids easily could understand and appreciate. We were busy but not overworked, and all of us left there thinking that we would like to come back and help again soon. It was especially neat to take a tour of the kitchen and dining facility and have an opportunity to meet the woman responsible for cooking lunches for about 350 clients every day. She was busy mopping the floor (I'm sure everyone who works there wears many hats), and she thanked us profusely for the work we had done. It made us feel good that we were able to help someone who works as hard as she does. One day soon I will drive my kids by Caritas around 11:30 am and let them see the long line of clients in need of a nutritious, hot lunch. I'm sure it will make a lasting impression, just as Little Helping Hands does with every volunteer opportunity.
