Day 25

So I had the opportunity to see a fascinating group of volunteers at SafeHouse today. They had tents set up outside, under which they had hot chocolate for people and were making chicken noodle soup. They then had a table set up with "goody bags" (socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, and other personal care items) which they were passing out to people. In the kitchen they were making dinner boxes/bags for everyone. They just took over the night and had several volunteers come help out it was really well organized and people were very grateful!

It's interesting to see the different groups that come out to serve dinner. They all have their own way of doing things and it has been fun just joining in and listening to their different stories about past nights they've come out to SafeHouse. Their time and effort is truly appreciated by all those that come to SafeHouse for a meal, this is especially evident when you're standing out on the lot looking at the line for seconds or when people are expressing their gratitude as they leave for the night. These volunteer groups are really incredible!
