2017 Service Learning Trip by Marissa Bober

There are many ways people struggle in our world; sickness, homelessness, or malnourishment. It can also be all three, but there are people here that try to do whatever they can to help these people. They put their own time and money into a company that helps make sure these unfortunate people have a future. These companies are started from scratch by people who care plus are still running because of donations and volunteers. It's amazing to see the goodness in so many people helping their neighbors or even other countries' people.


The best thing for me was helping with the Ronald McDonald House and Feed My Starving Children. I love doing physical work to help people in need. The making process of the bags of food at Feed My Staving Children was a great experience. I want to do it again. It was something I have wanted to do for a while. The great smiles on the families at Ronald McDonald were the best feeling to see. We took a load of stress off of mom and dad's shoulders. It was fun and rewarding at the same time.


My suggestion is that we have more time helping out at the volunteer places. That's my favorite part, and it goes by so fast. I love how we do a volunteer opportunity and then a fun event, it keeps a great balance.
