Gleaners Food Bank

Yesterday, during RA training, us RAs volunteered at Gleaners Food Bank. It was so nice for all of us to come together and work toward a good cause. When we first arrived we watched a video about the work we would be doing and the impact we will be making in the community. After that we broke off into groups to work on a different project. Some people went to the meat packing section in the freezer and some went to sort the food. My group was assigned to placing the food on the counter to be sorted.

In total we all helped produce a total of 8,600 pounds of food for needy families and children. It felt good that I helped contribute to that total and hopefully we’ll be able to return in the future. All this week during training we have been emphasizing on charity and giving back to the community, which I think is a very good trait to have as a person and being a contributing member of society.

Our group during work!

Butler Return

I have officially moved all of my things back to Butler. I got back Wednesday but it took me two days to get my room how I want it. No, I’m not just that slow, I’ve had RA training this week! Yesterday we did icebreakers and got to know each other which was fun, especially seeing all of the other RAs in the other buildings.

Today we find out all of the people in our units so I’m really looking forward to that. I have to make doortags to put people’s names on their doors and I have to decorate the FIVE bulletin boards in my hallway. I have to do this along with other RA training activities today so my day will definitely be busy!

My room with all my stuff in it. Hopefully it stays this neat during the year!
