Volunteering at the Salvation Army
In the wake of the large tornado that swept through Raleigh recently, I used one of my Viget-sponsored “community service days” to volunteer at the Salvation Army of Wake County. I spent the day collecting and sorting donations, which involved a lot of heavy lifting!
The donations were really rolling in. It’s amazing to see how much people care about each other and want to help — but it’s also amazing to see just how much stuff we have!
Here’s the giant mound of bags upon bags of clothing donations.
And here it is from above. Impressive!
I spent my last community service day helping the Ronald McDonald House of Durham, and my friends and I spent a day helping the Basic Needs Ministry in Garner not too long ago. Hopefully I’ll have a few more chances soon to keep helping out around the community!
