This event was 4 hours long and I volunteered with my political living and learning community to paint a community church/school. We were each divided into pairs and were assigned a specific room or restroom.
My partner and I were assigned the girls restroom and we had to paint the whole restroom from pink to blue. Honestly this experience helped me realize how tough some people have it because the restroom and building itself were kind of beaten down. However the people running it were so motivated in giving to these kids that they were willing to fix it up or paint it different just to keep the kids motivated in going.
