 SERVE Volunteer Comments… “What was the best experience during your SERVE session?”:

• Spending time with the kids and helping them feel loved.

• Reflection Day was important because I found out what poverty really is.

• Being with the kids and seeing them have fun & smile and knowing I helped do that.

• Reflection Day helped me realize what really happens in business and how close poverty is to me.

• Meeting the homeless and putting smiles on their faces.

• Working with the kids, I was learning from them and not so much them learning from me.

• This program helped me grow emotionally and spiritually.

“Meeting the homeless…and putting smiles on their faces.”

“Being able to experience the joy in my heart when I served people their meals.”

“Being able to meet and build relationships with new people.”

“I especially enjoyed tutoring the kids.”

“Great Experience…I definitely want to do it again next summer.”
