In this volunteer activity, I, with a couple of women, were assigned to fold t-shirts for people who were going to participate in the run, and we would restack the section were they had the t-shirts. After everyone getting a t-shirt, I was assigned to keep a big bucket full of ice and gatorares. I, as well as other girls, directed people to where they will get their ribbon and a bag. After everygone got their ribbon, everyone entered the building whete they had many family activities, they also had live music and food. I really enjoyed volunteering here because I felt welcomed.
In this event, there were three different activities that we were assigned to do. We needed to clean purses, attach a tag and put brochures inside of each purse. Since at the very beginning I was the only one in this event, I was doing all three activities. After a while, another participant came in and he was helping me build the brochures (which consisted of 6 different information sheets, and I was cleaning the bags and putting the tags in it.
There were many activities that we could all do such as picking up undesired grass, transferring plants from one place to another, planting new plants, fixing the entrance of the garden and painting some art work. The activity that I did was to pick up the undesired grass from around the plants and in the main kind of hall way.
In today's event, we started by putting the handbags in boxes. Then, I organized people in different areas to have a better progress. Two people were cleaning bags, one was putting the tags and the brochures inside of the handbags, another one was stocking them in the shell and I was making the package (which consisted of 4 brochures).
In this experience we were helping around. Home deport needed our help and we helped them set up the tables for the kids to build a little kind of basket. We also made a tree with buckets. And I also helped in the parking area.
We set up out table, decorated it, brought charis and brought water to out table. We were also looking around in case someone needed us.
In this event, I and another girl named Sara did every decoration you could see with ballons, from the ballon arc to decorating the tents outside with ballons. I also helped a little doing the bags with treats and candies for the kids.
