Since we’re headed to Emory for Shabbat in a little bit, we only volunteered for half a day today. We visited a children’s home that provides shelter, enrichment activities, and a variety of other services to orphaned children. After touring the beautiful grounds, we got right to work. We raked a large field that was covered with leaves until we got there. Special shout-outs to Ellen and Alison for being superstar rakers!
Today was the first time we had weather that Gita and I were hoping for when we picked Atlanta for our trip. In between the raking we took breaks to play stickball. Breaking a sweat from playing hard and working even harder was a great way for us to end the week of community service.
We got back to SafeHouse a little bit ago and Vince from E2L joined our group for an evaluation and lunch. Everybody is getting prepared and dressed for Shabbat. I probably should start getting ready too. I’ll write again once we’re back from Emory.
