My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Moments Of Hope Outreach, Hanover, VA, USA
October 2017..... what began on a random Saturday, volunteering with this Outreach for the first time as a service project for my daughters Jr Beta Club has turned in to a blessing for my family. My children (13 and 16yr olds) and I planned on doing once a month. But after day 1..... we were hooked. The volunteers and the friends we serve are family to us. We have met so many people and on the rare occasion we miss a Saturday serving, we miss it greatly.
As a parent, watching my children have conversations, and watching them step out of their comfort zones has been wonderful to see. I too have been forced to step out of my comfort zone. For the last several months I have been checking our friends in as they arrive....that’s a whole lot of hellos and conversations every week..... and I’m blessed that I get to say hi to each of them. I couldn’t begin to guess how many hugs I’ve received in the 8 months of volunteering..... and truly look forward to every Saturday.
