Rebuilding Together Austin & Siemens

I participated in Rebuilding Together Austin and Siemens event on February 21st, 2015. During this event, I had the opportunity to help in painting and helping clean an elderly person's house. I learned much from this experience, in that help can be provided even in the smallest things, such as painting someone's house.

So true Juan! Our impact was huge for this family since they can't do the work themselves. Thank you for your help on Saturday!!

I participated for three hours in my small group ULN service project. I volunteered for three days, one hour each (12/5; 11/25; 11/21) to place a table in front of Gregory Gym to let people know about our cause and receive any donations for the homeless. These donations were delivered to a Homeless Shelter located on 7th street. The mentor in charge of this event was Missael Soto and Justin Brewer. The contact information for my mentor is lanefoursoto@yahoo.com and phone number is 956-312-2724

Great service opportunity, which will enable the Austin Children's Services organization to raise money for their future projects.

Last September 27th, I had the opportunity to go to Williamsons Creek Greenbelt to help the local community clean and improve the conditions of such natural space. This event was one of the many offered by the Austin Parks Foundation in remembrance for the National Public Lands Day. Thus being able to participate in such event, I was able to notice how there is always an opportunity to help the community. In my service opportunity, I helped by picking up trash from the area, I cut of the ragweed, and I took some logs or other obstacles that were in the way of the Williamson’s Creek trail. During these activities, it was of much interest to me to see how some people who lived close to the area came to Williamsons Creek to help and talk to us about how the excessive rain in Austin during certain months of the year cause for many trees and plants to fall and spread all over the land. This knowledge made me think about the impact that such service opportunity was having on those people. I was therefore able to be part of improving a community’s lifestyle.
Henceforth after working on the maintenance of the creek for three hours, I realize how a community can be impacted not only through big events, but by simple events like the one I assisted. I learned as well that taking care of nature is very important in the Austin community and this community should serve as an example to the rest of the world. The Austin community has come to understand the many benefits that the creation and maintenance of green urban areas can bring to the city. These benefits include improving the image of the city, reducing temperatures, reducing pollution, and becoming recreational areas. With the experience and knowledge I gathered in this service opportunity, I was able to understand that service opportunities bring people together. Such opportunities can improve society, through taking care of nature, the elderly, or the homeless. My service opportunity in Williamsons Creek allowed me to have a different perspective towards community service. A perspective that sees such service as making a lasting impact in other people’s lives.
