Review for Carpenter's Shelter, Alexandria, VA, USA
I've volunteered with Carpenter's Shelter for several months now, especially at Children's Hour, which is a time that volunteers get to play with the kids in the shelter. It's a unique opportunity for volunteers- I've never done anything like it. And the kids love playing with new people...I hope we brighten their day as they are under a lot of stress.
Even though it's a shelter, the environment is so positive and the residents are always interacting with the staff, who is always around to assist. It's been a wonderful opportunity and I hope to continue volunteering for a long time!
