LINCOLN PARK COMMUNITY SHELTER
November 23, 2010
I began volunteering a few years ago teaching classes like time management and budgeting. I saw right away how impactful classes and discussions like these could be for people trying to make life changes. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to be a part of that. Now I am active in the fund raising as well as being a dinner volunteer. Bringing friends to make and serve dinner is a great way to showcase the organization and spend quality time with your friends doing something that helps others. I am constantly amazed at the work and diligence of the guests to change their lives. I was most touched when I met a volunteer who had previously been a guest, moved out on his own and chose to come back to work or volunteer. My fiancé’ is now a volunteer at the shelter as well and we hope to bring our children there in the future to join us as dinner volunteers.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I met a man who had been a guest at one time and had graduated and moved out on his own. He chose to come back to work or volunteer and I realized how this place fed the community with more than just meals.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make the space bigger to accommodate more guests.
