Arnold of California volunteers for food back to help the hungry
I have been volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank and Glide Memorial with my school and on my own as an individual. I did it because both of these places help those less fortunate and in order to remain active they count on volunteers and donations. With the unemployment rates rising, there is a higher demand for food and less items being donated. I want to help in anyway I can so I volunteer my time and I know I am helping a good cause. Glide Memorial allowed me to take a look at those I was helping so I was able to see my works in action.
I got involved at Second Harvest Food bank from a friend of my moms. I learned how important their volunteers are and how badly they need the help. It is a nonprofit organization. I have collected canned goods and brought them on the days I volunteer. Every once in awhile I see a homeless person and it just wants me to help more. With my help, I know they can have food and not go hungry.
