Review for Yanawana Herbolarios, Floresville, TX, USA
I first volunteered with Yanawana Herbolarios in fall of 2017, right after Hurricane Harvey flooded much of the Texas gulf coast, leaving many people without a home to return to and in great need of support. Yanawana Herbolarios was sending a team to the Houston area to bring much needed supplies, offer free integrative health clinics, and general support to area residents. While I was unable to be part of the team going to Houston, I was given the opportunity to make an impact by assisting with the food and supply drive, contacting stakeholders, and being part of the communications team. I had never done any communications work before, but felt very confident in this role after the training session we completed. Everyone that I interacted with was quite knowledgeable and dedicated to their work, and very welcoming. It was such a good experience that I went on to continue volunteering in some of their community programs, as has my daughter. I am very grateful to get a chance to make an impact in the lives of others so directly, and with such a great organization. I hope to continue to volunteer with Yanawana Herbolarios, and look forward to participating in the new programs that are coming up this year.
