The Caring Hands


Last week a group of volunteers from my work went to feed the women and children at a local shelter. It was a lot of hard work - but fun and rewarding too! We asked our colleagues to bring in a prepared dish that could be easily heated up for a potluck style dinner. Some people had different ideas of what can be easily heated, but in the end things worked out and the shelter's residents got plenty to eat that night with enough leftovers for the entire week! We also had a food/supply drive to help stock them up for the future. One person can change the world - even if it's only a little.

What a wonderful thing to do for those that have less than we do. I am sure all of you got a blessing from this.

What a great thing you've all done. I imagine it was somewhat difficult to see the faces of the children and women there.

I'm sure it was tiresome work, and yet very rewarding.

This is really sweet! I need to do this kind of thing more. It meant so much to them, I'm sure.

Kudos for you and your co-workers! We need to be reminded on the truthfulness of your last statement; sometimes we lose sight of that important fact.
